Claudius Peters, part of Langley Holdings, and Hope Cement, part of the Breedon Group, have successfully completed a major Turnkey project.
The Capex project, one of the largest in the plant's history, included the upgrade and replacement of the existing kiln feed equipment built with the plant in the 1970’s, increasing the accuracy and capacity of the system to 200tph of raw meal, for kiln 1, kiln 2, and a standby unit.
The challenge with this project was that the new equipment had to be installed while the plant remained in operation and within the existing preheater building. Access was very restricted, and naturally due to the kiln lines being in operation, temperatures for working were very high.
After lengthy discussions, the contract was signed on the 1st October 2014 with a completion in May 2017 due to the requirement of the programmed shutdowns of each kiln line.
Together with the assistance of good local contractors and the project team from Hope Cement, Claudius Peters completed the project on time and with the full performance of the system required.
