thyssenkrupp, a leading building materials manufacturer, is to supply a production line for a LafargeHolcim cement plant in Morocco. The new production line is set to have a 3500 tpd cement clinker production.
The project will cover the engineering, procurement and construction of the new greenfield facility. The line will be built in the Souss Massa region near Tidsi, situated near the regional capital Agadir. The plant is scheduled for 2H20.
“Nearly four decades of ongoing and successful collaboration have strengthened the relationship between thyssenkrupp and LafargeHolcim in Morocco," said Frank Ruoss, CEO of the Cement Technologies business unit. "Both companies share the same vision: we provide state-of-the-art technology and develop tailor-made solutions for our customers."
The main components include a 1000 tph primary crusher, a longitudinal additives storage facility, a circular stockpile with a storage capacity of 12 000 t, and a blending silo of 4,600 tons. The kiln system consists of a five stage, single-string polysius preheating tower, a twopier rotary kiln, and a POLYTRACK clinker cooler. The line is completed by a ball mill for solid combustibles and a clinker stock with a total storage capacity of up to 65 000 tons.
