A consortium led by Sacyr Industrial has been awarded the EPC contract for a new cement plant in Potosí, Bolivia. The contract was signed with Servicio de Desarrollo de las Empresas Públicas Productiva (SEDEM) for ECEBBOL, Bolivia’s state-owned cement producer.

The contract is worth US$241 million and is the second of its kind in Bolivia, following the award of the Oruro cement plant in 2015. A similar contract was also awarded last year for the construction of the Riobamba line in Ecuador. It includes the greenfield design, construction, assembly, and commissioning of a new clinker line with a capacity of 3000 tpd, along with the cement line with production capacity of 1.3 million tpy.

The EPC consortium includes Sacyr Industrial, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, and Imasa Ingeniería y Proyectos.

The plant will use a dry process with the following equipment units: primary crushing, a pre-homogenisation yard, a vertical raw mill, a raw meal silo, a five-stage preheater tower, a rotary kiln, a grate cooler, a clinker silo, a cement mill and cement silo, and a packaging and palletising line.
