KHD awarded contract for cement plant upgrade project

World Cement,

KHD has been awarded a contract by Italcementi to upgrade and redevelop its Brescia Rezzato plant near Lake Garda, Italy. Due to the environmentally sensitive nature of the area, the new plant will conform to strict emissions and noise requirements.

In addition to supplying Italcementi with environmental equipment such as SCR, SNCR, filter systems for SOx reduction and a gas conditioning tower, KHD will provide the plant with:

  • KHD COMFLEX® SC 18 – 3250 system for raw material grinding.
  • 2-Pier PYRORAPID® Kiln 3000 tpd, 4.4m x 52m.
  • PFC PYRFLOOR® clinker cooler 635 AW.
  • Low NOX 5 stage Preheater: 7950 PR.

Italcementi is investing €150 million into the project, which will see emissions reduced by 75%, costs by 23% and energy consumption by 23%. Operation is set to recommence at the plant at the end of 2014.
