On 25 March, Sinoma Tianjin signed project management, the last part of the Shree Digvijay project with Votorantim, which signifies the company signed its first EPC contract in India.
This project aims to upgrade Shree Digvijay’s coal mill facility at the cement plant in Gujarat State. A tube mill will replace the existing mill to grind petcoke, increasing production and reducing consumption by using petcoke with high calorific value instead of inferior coal.
The total contract value is US$4.5 million. Sinoma-owned LNVT is in charge of local procurement, electric and automatic supply and civil construction, which is worth US$2.01 million.
The signing of this project provides a more effective model to explore the Indian market, taking advantage of Sinoma’s experience in EPC general contracting and the benefits of LNVT for local procurement.
On 15 March, the 2 x 60 tph cement grinding station project contracted by Sinoma Tianjin was issued FAC, which signifies acceptance by the employer and enters into a 1-year quality guarantee period.
This project commenced on 28 June 2012. At the end of June 2013, the first shipments of equipments were delivered to the site, while the second shipment was delivered on 28 September. On 16 January 2014, cement mill 426 was put into production and cement mill 416 was successfully put into production on 18 February. The mills passed their 72-hour acceptance tests on 27 February and 8 March, respectively.
