thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions has received a contract from HeidelbergCement AG to supply a new cement clinker production line, to be built at the Schelklingen plant in Baden-Wurttemberg. The 4500 tpd facility will replace an existing older production line. Start of production is planned for spring 2018.

For the new kiln line thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions will supply state-of-the-art components, including a 5-stage, single-strand DOPOL preheater, a POLRO rotary kiln with a POLGUIDE drive system, and a POLYTRACK clinker cooler with roll crusher. The innovative design of the calciner used in the preheater will ensure outstanding fuel burnout with low nitrogen oxide emissions. The POLYTRACK cooler also features a highly efficient heat recovery system that minimises fuel input. Upon completion the new kiln line will be one of the most advanced and eco-friendly cement production facilities in the world.

Lothar Jungemann, CEO of the Cement operating unit in the Resource Technologies business unit of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions: “Although most of the cement contracts we have been awarded recently have been to build new production capacities in growth regions, this order shows that there is also demand in Europe to modernise and expand existing facilities. Our highly efficient technologies, which we continually improve together with our customers, guarantee maximum reliability and allow producing innovative products in an economical and environmentally friendly way.”
