Burkina Faso: Cim Metal Group has ordered an upgrade to its Cimasso cement grinding plant in Bobo Dioulasso from Germany-based Intercem Engineering. The cement producer has decided to double the plant’s production capacity to at least 4Mt/yr by ordering an extension production line and upgrading the original line. The plant, which was also supplied by Intercem, was originally commissioned in 2018.
The new order includes: three truck unloading stations; raw material handling systems; a raw material hopper station; a cement grinding unit with a vertical roller mill; four 5400t cement silos; five 12 spout rotary packers; ten truck loading stations; ten truck weighing bridges; and one upgrade to the existing cement grinding plant. Intercem is in charge of the engineering, all mechanical and electrical plant components, project management and is also responsible for the supervision activities for the civil, mechanical and electrical assembly works and the commissioning of the plant. No date for commissioning has been announced.
