Impregilo & OAS – Brazil

360T of concrete cooling at its best

Facts

  • Cooperation with Italian industrial group Salini Impregilo
  • Project started in 2008, finished in 2012

Recom Ice Systems received a prestigious order to supply four independent fully automatic flake ice plants totaling a daily production of 360 tons (each 90T/day). The Recom equipment is combined with concrete mixing equipment to serve as a concrete factory for the construction of a hydroelectric dam at Tocantins River, 150 km south of Imperatriz, Brazil named Estreito Hydroelectric Power Plant.

The order was given by the consortium of Impregilo Italy, Construtora OAS Ltd. named as Consorcio Rio Tocantins and Consórcio Estreito Energia (Ceste).

“Recom Ice Systems did a great job in supplying a reliable concrete cooling ice plant. The location and circumstances made it a challenge, but Recom delivered.”
