ThyssennKrupp Industrial Solutions’ new McInnis Cement plant in Quebec, Canada, is currently undergoing construction and will produce 6000 tpd of clinker. It has ordered an MV Drive System from TMEIC. The TIMEIC Dura-Bilt5i MV series of medium-voltage drives will be supplied. These offer a strong and compact design, straightforward operation and a cost-efficient operation of a variety of applications.

Manmeet Bhatia, General Manager, Global Drives, TMEIC stated: "This award represents a very significant order for our company. As the cement industry emerges from the problems of the last few years, we are very pleased that ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (USA), Inc. selected us and our world class, energy efficient products for the McInnis – Port-Daniel facility."

Commissioning of the plant is planned for Autumn 2016 and production is anticipated to commence in 2017. It will be fitted with a POLCID proprietary process control system to monitor and control the facility and a POLAB laboratory automation system to ensure product quality throughout all phases of the process.

Mark S. Terry, President of Resource Technologies division of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions said: "The McInnis cement project represents the most technologically advanced and environmentally sound plant of its kind, designed to meet or beat the most stringent requirements of both the Canadian and American Environmental agencies. Combined with the extensive experience of both project teams, we have the complete recipe for success for the Port-Daniel-Gascons facility.''
