Holcim Backs SiloConnect Developer

Holcim is investing in Nanolike as the producer bolsters its commitment to build better with less through innovative digital technologies, from operations and distribution to building solutions and customer experience.

Nanolike’s Internet of Things technology-equipped SiloConnect platform is programmed to ensure users have the right amount of cement at the right time. A plug-and-play solution with versatile sensors, SiloConnect automates the ordering process and provides users automated silo fill level alerts. The technology streamlines logistics processes, optimizes bulk tanker delivery routes, and consistently upholds stored cement or cementitious material levels. 

Following successful deployments in European cement and concrete plants, Holcim plans SiloConnect installations over the next three years in thousands of silos around the world, reshaping “the way cement is stored, distributed and delivered.”

“At Holcim we are accelerating new technologies and solutions across our entire value chain to drive more efficient and sustainable operations. Nanolike has successfully demonstrated its ability to bring innovative logistics solutions to the construction industry. Through this strategic partnership, we are bringing technology and sustainability together to decarbonize building for a net-zero future,” said Edelio Bermejo, head of global R&D.
