World Cement,

Intercem Engineering has signed an EP contract with SOFICO for a new plant in Haiti. The contract was signed in June of this year and includes engineering, project management, transport, mechanical and electrical equipment, and the supervision of the civil works, mechanical and electrical works, and commissioning. All equipment will be supplied by German manufacturers or other EU countries.

The plant will have a capacity of 5000 tpd of clinker and 6000 tpd of cement. Intercem will provide the full line from raw material handling to cement loading.

This includes crushing and storage of limestone and additives, grinding and homogenisation of raw materials, and feeding to the five-stage single-string preheater/precalciner. The 5000 tpd capacity rotary kiln and kiln filter system will feed through to a clinker cooler equipped with air/air heat exchanger with bag filter. Clinker will be stored in a 100 000 t storage facility, while cement will be ground with a 6000 tpd vertical roller mill.

Cement will be stored in 4 x 5500 t concrete cement silos with bulk loading systems. The plant will also include three eight-spout rotary bag packers and four truck loading systems with a capacity of 8000 tpd.
