Spiroll Hollowcore to Support Nigerian Convention Centre

Following the announcement of the agreement between Spiroll and CCL, the first major project between the two companies was the setup of a new hollowcore factory in Abuja, Nigeria. The company in question, I. T. B. Nigeria Limited, is producing 200,000 m2 of Spiroll slabs to supply the construction of a new International Convention Centre in the Nigerian capital.

Abuja Factory

I. T. B., an African based company with its headquarters in Lagos, is focusing its commercial energies on providing high quality civil engineering and construction. Their clients are some of the most prestigious in the world, including government agencies and multi-national corporations.

Working together, Spiroll and CCL supplied the machinery, services and project management that has ensured a smooth delivery on the contract. The Abuja factory is now producing over 500 m2 of high quality hollowcore slabs per day on 4 x 120 m long casting beds, in 5 different depths from 150 mm – 360 mm.

Production has hit the ground running, with the Universal Extruder, alongside a complete range of ancillary Spiroll precast concrete machinery, allowing the staff in the factory to quickly maximise production efficiency.

Multi Angle Saw

A Multi-Angle Saw provides fast and accurate cuts at any angle in the hollowcore slabs, and is very easy to use. The Bed Cleaner allows the production staff to clean and prepare the beds in less than 15 minutes, requiring only one man to operate. This saves considerable time on what is normally a labour intensive process.

A comprehensive maturity curing system with a boiler and under bed heating is giving a minimum of 10MPa difference in early strength, allowing the production operatives to cut and lift the hollowcore slabs less than 13 hours after casting.

ITB Factory Manager Alex Abdelahad said; “the importance of Spiroll machines is that they are easy to operate and maintain, with minimum manpower. The extruder provides a high quality hollow core slab with the absence of cracks or weak spots on it.”

The factory and the Convention Centre itself will stand as testament to the continued success of the partnership between Spiroll and CCL.
