Egypt: Germany’s Loesche GmbH has been contracted to supply 18 new vertical roller mills to China’s Sinoma CDI, which is building a six line cement plant at Beni Suef on behalf of the Egyptian Ministry of Defence. Each line will have a capacity of 6000t/day (12.6Mt/yr), making the plant one of the largest in the world.
Six raw mills, each with a capacity of 500t/hr, will grind cement raw material to a fineness of 12% R 90μm, six powerful cement mills, each with a throughput of 350t/hr will grind clinker to a fineness of 3200 Blaine and six Loesche coal mills will grind coal to a fineness of 10% R 90μm.
It is anticipated that the mills will be delivered within 2017, putting high demands on the delivery time of the mill components. Thanks to their long-standing experiences from a variety of fast-track-projects Loesche was able to carry conviction to the Ministry of Defence and assure the expected quick market entry with an elaborated plan of delivery.
