Sinoma International has ordered Loesche’s complete grinding series for its Nova Cimangola S.A. cement plant in Luanda, Angola. The order includes one new cement raw material mill of the type LM 48.4, with a 400 tph capacity, and two cement mills of the type LM 46.2+2 C/S, which are designed to have a capacity of 150 tph of cement each. The order is completed with an LM 24.20 DC type coal mill.

Further equipment, such as rotary star feeders, metal detectors, the engineering for the cyclones, classifier motors and the control system are also within Loesche’s scope of supply, along with a two years operation spare parts contract.

More than 310 Loesche cement mills have already been sold throughout the world for the production of a wide spectrum of cement types. These will be the first Loesche vertical mills in Angola.

The coal mill and cement raw material mill are scheduled to start operation in mid-2016. The cement mills will then follow, with production starting by the end of 2016.
