Gebr. Pfeiffer has been awarded a contract by the Chip Mong Group to supply three vertical roller mills for a new cement production line in Touk Meas, Cambodia. The order comprises an MPS 3350 BK for coal as well as an MVR 5000 R-4 for raw material and an MVR 6000 C-6 for cement grinding.
The cement mill will be equipped with a MultiDrive consisting of four modules, with an installed power of 7200 kW. This drive system ensures a redundant operation of the MVR mill and achieves a high level of availability of a vertical roller mill. It was this increased availability that led to the product’s selection for this project, along with the fact that the combination allowed the customer to go for the cost-saving ‘one mill solution’.
The MultiDrive® enables grinding operation to continue not only when one grinding roller is swung out but also in case of a planned maintenance stop or unplanned outage of one of the 1800-kW gear units. This, of course, also applies in the unlikely event of a failure of an electric drive motor.
The cement mill MVR 6000 C-6, which will be set up in cooperation with CITIC Heavy Industries, will be the largest vertical roller mill in the ASEAN region and mark another important milestone for Gebr. Pfeiffer.
Delivery of the mills is scheduled to take place in the 1Q17.
