The Nevyansky cement plant in Russia has completed maintenance work on the kiln and raw meal mills. The Nevyansky plant is part of Eurocement, a leading global cement producer with operations in Russia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

According to a company press release, the maintenance work included the repair to the kiln shell, as well as the replacement to 38 m of refractory lining. Work was also carried out on the cyclone’s heat exchanger, increasing efficiency – and thus productivity – of the kiln, while decreasing fuel consumption.

New gear lubrication systems on the kiln and the raw mills were installed, increasing productivity.

On the environmental side, drives on the electrostatic precipitators were repaired and modernised, reducing dust emissions from the plant and improving the company’s environmental performance.

The maintenance work involved seven local companies from the Sverdlovsk and Chelyabinsk regions, as well as from Lipetsk and Bryansk, employing more than 160 people. The cost of repairs is estimated to be about RUB70 million.

The maintenance work has raised the reliability of the equipment and allowed the company to head into construction season with confidence, said Viktor Burmensky, Head of the Planning Department for Maintenance and Cost Control.
