ThyssenKrupp has won a €150 million contract from Thailand’s TPI Polene Public Company for the construction of a cement and clinker plant in Saraburi. The plant will have a production capacity of 10 000 tpd, with production due to commence in 2015.
ThyssenKrupp Resource Technologies’ scope of supply includes the major components from raw material preparation and clinker production to cement grinding and fuel preparation. It will also provide plant control and quality monitoring and control systems. Once the new line has been completed, the facility’s total cement production capacity will reach 12 million tpa, including three lines supplied by ThyssenKrupp in the 1990s.
“This contract underlines our longstanding partnership with Thailand in the plant construction sector. We are delighted to be able to use our engineering expertise to support the Thai cement industry and serve the growing demand for cement with our energy-efficient facilities,” commented Dr Hans Christoph Atzpodien, CEO of the Industrial Solutions business area of ThyssenKrupp AG.
Domestic demand for cement in Thailand is predicted to increase to 45 million tpa by 2015. TPI Polene is one of the country’s top three cement producers.
