In June 2017, Fives was awarded a cement ball mill workshop revamping project by the Giant Cement Co., on an EPC basis.
The contract included the complete engineering, supply, fabrication, transportation, installation, and commissioning services for material handling, cement grinding, and cement loading. For material handling this included a new clinker and additives transport circuit, together with its respective dedusting system. For cement grinding it was a new classifying circuit, including a new high efficiency FCB TSVTM classifier, a new Fives TGT® filter, and all gas and material connections, as well as the ball mill internals revamping. For cement loading the contract included a new cement truck loading and weighing station.
While the overall engineering, offshore supplies, and project management stood with Fives FCB, the onshore supplies and all site works, including civil and structural works, and mechanical and electrical installations, were under the scope of Fives Silos Inc.
The major milestones of the project included the starting of the civil works on 11 November 2017. Mechanical and electrical erection works were from February to July 2018, and first cement production was on 29 June 2018.
