Fives FCB has signed a contract for revamping the kiln at a refractory chamotte plant in Cherkassy, Ukraine. The Vatutinsky Kombinat Vognetryviv (VKV) plant is owned by Paris-based Imerys Refractory Materials, a part of Imerys Group.

The contract includes the supply of parts for the kiln mechanical refurbishment, as well as erection, engineering, and supervision. The first stage of the project consists of revamping and upgrading the kiln #1, in order to increase its speed and to improve productivity.

Equipment will be supplied to site with 10 months from the starting date of the project; kiln commissioning is planned within 12 months.

VKV began operations in 1963, extracting clay in the Cherkassy region of Ukraine, according to the Imerys Refractory Materials website, producing its first calcined products for the refractory industry in 1970. It became part of the Imerys Group in 2007.
