LafargeHolcim Poland orders Gebr. Pfeiffer vertical roller mill
Published by Emily Thomas,
LafargeHolcim Poland has ordered a vertical roller mill for cement raw material grinding from Gebr. Pfeiffer for its plant in Malogoszcz, approximately 200 km south of the capital Warsaw.
The mill will grind 307 tph of cement raw material to a fineness of 12 % R 0.090 mm and is equipped with a total drive power of 2500 kW. It will be the first MVR vertical mill to be installed in neighbouring Poland.
The key factor for the customer's purchase decision was in particular the – in comparison – significantly lower specific energy requirement of the grinding system, which considerably reduces the total energy costs and CO2 emissions.
The order will be executed by the Chinese general contractor Nanjing Kisen.
Commissioning is scheduled for the first half of 2022.
An MVR mill of the same size is also producing in South Africa.
