World Cement,


SOMA Cimento has placed an order with KHD for the engineering and equipment supply of its new 4000 tpd clinker production line at SOMA cement plant, located near the town of Soma, Manisa, in the Aegean region of Turkey.

The contract includes engineering, equipment supply, and supervision of erection and commissioning, including KHD’s SIMULEX plant simulation system, which will simulate operation of the plant.

The core components of KHD’s new line are:

  • 5-stage KHD Preheater with PYROCLON-R® LowNOX AF calciner, equipped with PYROTOP® compact mixing chamber, tertiary air duct and PYROBOX calciner firing system.
  • PYRORAPID® two-tire rotary kiln, with a diameter of 4.6 m.
  • PYRO-JET® kiln burner
  • PYROFLOOR® clinker cooler equipped with a PYROCRUSHER® System.

The project marks the third commissioning of KHD’s Low-NOx calciner with PYROLOOP® Technology in Turkey. Coupled with KHD’s proven pyroprocessing technology, the project combines cutting-edge thermal recuperation and low emissions technology.

This will be KHD’s 51st line in Turkey. Turkey traditionally has the highest market share of KHD equipment, with almost 70% of Turkish production units designed and installed by KHD.

Commissioning of the plant is scheduled for the spring of 2018.
