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.
