Cemex has chosen FLSmidth to supply the 2800 tpd cement production line for its new Cementera del Magdalena Medio S.A.S. cement plant in Antioquia, Colombia. This part of the country is expected to see increased cement demand as the economy improves and planned investments in infrastructure take effect.
The FLSmidth line will use the latest production technologies to achieve high environmental and quality standards. In addition to engineering services, project management and commissioning, all major processing machines are included. The pyroprocessing line consists of an FRMTM mill for raw grinding, an ATOX® coal mill, 5-stage ILC preheater with a Low NOx Calciner, an FLSmidth® Cross-Bar® cooler, and a two-pier kiln. Pfister® weighing and dosing systems, MAAG® gear reducers, gas analysers as well as all Airtech process filters are also included.
"Colombia has experienced a strong economic growth and is expected to see an increase in the cement demand. FLSmidth has a strong local presence in the country – including a regional office and a local service unit, so we are ready to serve the market," said President of the Cement Division Per Mejnert Kristensen.
