The Eurocement Group has upgraded the grinding at its Katavsky cement plant. The modernisation of the enterprise has been completed and the implementation of the investment project has allowed the expansion of the company’s range of products. This includes the appearance of high grade cements, as well as the improvement of quality and the increased stability of the cement characteristics.
Investments in the modernisation of the grinding station at Katavsky Cement have amounted to over RUB180 million. The capital construction and installation of metal structures and equipment was carried out. The company used equipment from leading Western companies, such as Christian Pfeiffer separators, Aumund elevators, Siemens automation systems and mill grinders, and VEGA grinding bodies. Precommissioning is currently being completed, at the same time as laboratory tests for the products with improved characteristics are being carried out.
When implementing this investment project, the synergy effect of the cooperation of enterprises within the Eurocement group was also involved. Thus, employees of the Ural enterprise took over from their colleagues the best practices of working with grinding equipment, as part of training on the basis of the Eurocement Group Mordovian plant.
“The main goal of the modernisation was to improve the quality characteristics of our cement for the needs of our construction sector in the Southern Urals,” said Eduard Zvyagintsev, General Director of the enterprise. “At the same time, we paid great attention to environmental safety issues: we conducted an audit repair of equipment and in particular replaced filter sleeves. At Katavsky Cement, modern technologies are applied that meet the highest standards.”
