ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions has received an order worth approximately €100 million from Al Sawfa Cement Company, Saudi Arabia, for the construction of a complete cement production line. The new 5300 tpd production plant will be constructed parallel to the existing line in Jabal Farasan, approximately 150 km north-east of Jeddah. The existing Jabal Farasan production line, which was also supplied by ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, has been in operation since 2009.
"This follow-up order shows that our strategy of combining technological competence with a strong presence in growth regions is right,” said Lothar Jungemann, CEO of the Cement operating unit (Resource Technologies business unit) of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions. “It allows us to profit from the expansion of infrastructure and growth in urbanisation in many emerging markets. With our engineering expertise we also contribute to managing this growth in a sustainable way."
ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions is supplying all components for the new cement line, including equipment for the raw material preparation system, the clinker manufacturing process and the cement loading facility. Commissioning is planned for 2016.
