Ciments Calcia awards modification contract to A TEC Greco

World Cement,

Ciments Calcia, part of the Italcementi Group, opted to change the complete fuel system on the kiln burner at its plant in Couvrot, France, due to rising fuel oil costs.

A new petcoke system was started up in a prepared Greco kiln burner in September 2012. At the end of the year, the cement manufacturer went on to award A TEC Greco a contract for the implementation of a natural gas modification kit in the existing system.

The kit comprises a valve train for 3500 Nm3/h, a fuel management system, a gas lance, a flame sensor and the modification kit for the burner. Installation will be carried out according to EN 746-2, including failsafe programming on the fuel and burner management system. The update will be installed and started up following a short kiln stoppage in mid-June.
