Loesche will deliver 18 new vertical roller mills to the Egyptian Ministry of Defense for the new cement plant at Beni Suef. Six new production lines are planned, with a cement clinker capacity of 36 000 tpd until the end of 2017.
The raw mill, with a 500 tph capacity, will be used to grind cement raw material to a fineness of 12% R 90 μm. The six powerful cement mills will have a throughput of 350 tph each, and will be installed for the grinding of cement clinker to a fineness of 3200 Blaine. The six Loesche coal mills will be in operation for the grinding of coal to a fineness of 10% R 90 μm.
The project is unusual in that six lines, with a total capacity of 6000 tpd, were ordered in one go for a single cement plant, with the challenge of beginning operation in 2H17. These requirements place high demands on the delivery time of the mill components. Loesche’s experience with a variety of fast-track projects enabled it to complete the project and ensure the expected quick market entry with an elaborated plan of delivery.
Belonging to Sinoma International Engineering Co., Ltd., the renowned specialists for the planning of cement plants, Chengdu Design & Research is operating as the contract partner in this project. Both the general contractor as well as the end user were convinced that Loesche cement mills will produce cement of highest quality. This will enable the plant to meet the increasing cement demand from the public, the private sector and the mining industry. The state-of-the-art technology will also improve the competitiveness of the operator, as the plant can be operated on the lowest possible specific energy consumption.
On account of the new plant at Beni Suef, a considerable number of prosperous jobs will be created and available for the people in the region.
