ACC Ltd is a leading manufacturer of cement and ready-mixed concrete in India. It has 17 cement production plants, 75 ready-mixed concrete facilities, over 6700 employees, and a countrywide network of dealers and sales offices. For the Jamul plant expansion project (Line 2) in 2016, AUMUND India supplied, via KHD, a wide range of bucket elevators and pan conveyors. The aim was to increase the capacity of clinker production to almost 3 million tpy.
Starting cement production in 1965, Jamul Cement Works is in the Durg district of Chhattisgarh State. AUMUND India’s scope of supply for the recent plant expansion included six type KZB pan conveyors for clinker handling, with plate widths between 1200 and 2200 mm and centre distances ranging from 50 to 195 m; two type BWD bucket elevators for the handling of raw mix; three type BWZ bucket elevators for raw meal, clinker, and phosphorous, with centre distances varying from 32 to 36 m; and six type BWG bucket elevators for raw meal and cement, one of which stands at a height of 160 m.
ACC, previously known as The Associated Cement Companies Ltd, was formed in 1936 through the merger of 10 individual cement companies. With its headquarters in Mumbai, ACC became part of the Holcim Group in 2005, and has been part of the merged LafargeHolcim Group since 2015. Over the years, the company has worked with AUMUND India many times and, to date, there are over 200 of the company’s machines in operation in ACC plants across India. These include 133 belt bucket elevators, 11 chain bucket elevators, and 59 pan conveyors.
