Yamama Saudi Cement Company has appointed thyssenkrupp to build two turnkey cement production lines with a total capacity of 20 000 tpd. The plants will be built at a new site about 80 km east of Riyadh. The contract value is in the higher three-digit million euro range.
Jens Michael Wegmann, CEO of the Industrial Solutions business area of thyssenkrup, said: “Our partnership with Yamama is built on a longstanding tradition and dates back many decades. We are delighted that Yamama is once again putting its faith in our comprehensive experience in the turnkey construction of complete cement plants worldwide. With our reliable, highly efficient technologies we are profiting from infrastructure expansion in many growth regions and at the same time contributing to the conservation of valuable resources.”
thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions is carrying out the contract on an EPC basis. Its scope of supply includes all components for the new lines, from raw material preparation to clinker manufacture to cement loading. The main components include two mobile primary crushers for limestone (each 1800 tph throughput), three crushers for additives (each 500 tph), two crushers for correctives (each
100 tph), as well as two circular blending beds for limestone, each with a capacity of 80 000 t and various additive storage facilities. Four QUADROPOL QMR2 roller mills with a throughput of 425 tph and two 35 000 t capacity homogenising silos will be used to grind and store the raw material.
The new lines are scheduled to start operation in 2018.
