Saudi Arabia: Yamama Saudi Cement has ordered two sets of clinker conveying equipment from Aumund. The Saudi Arabian cement producer plans to start-up two clinker production lines in 2018 at a new site to the southwest of Riyadh. The two lines, with a combined capacity of 20,000t/day, are being built by ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions.
The scope of supply includes 29 chain bucket elevators and 18 belt bucket elevators, in heavy-duty and lighter designs, for these two lines. For raw meal, Aumund belt bucket elevators will be used. Filter dust will be conveyed by Aumund chain bucket elevators optimally designed for low capacity. Two Aumund double chain bucket elevators with a capacity of 2300t/hr have been ordered per line as recirculating bucket elevators in the cement mill. The supply package for the two lines also includes six Aumund pan conveyors as well as various flat gates, silo discharge gates, telescopic chutes and cleaning conveyors.
Egypt: Aumund has won a contract to supply clinker conveying equipment for six production lines. The tender is part of a project by Chengdu Design & Research Institute of Building Materials Industry (CDI), a subsidiary of Sinoma International Engineering, to build the 6000t/day lines for the government. No value has been released for the order.
The lines will each be equipped by Aumund with four 650t/hr BWG belt bucket elevators and three 550t/hr BWZ chain bucket elevators. The machinery package also includes four 170t/hr BWG-L belt bucket elevators, one 80t/hr BWZ-L chain bucket elevator and six 375t/hr pan conveyors for each of the six lines. Altogether the order comprises 108 machines.
The new project in Beni Suef is to be completed by the end of 2020. The pilot phase of the new production lines is due to start as early as December 2017. Aumund will supply the machines to Egypt in three deliveries, between April and June 2017.
India: Aumund India has been awarded orders for 17 bucket elevators, eight silo discharge systems and one pan conveyor in connection to orders FLSmidth has received from Tamilnadu Cement, Akij Cement and Shah Cement.
Aumund India will deliver one type BW-ZL bucket elevator, one type BWG belt bucket elevator and three type BWG-GK belt bucket elevators instead of the conventional Aumund type BWZ bucket elevator for the Akij Cement project. For the Tamilnadu Cement project FLSmidth had specific design criteria and wanted a certain safety factor for the chain. So Aumund India provided an optimised solution, which met these specific criteria. It will deliver two type BW-ZL bucket elevators, eight type BWG bucket elevators, eight type SDI silo discharge systems and one type KZB deep drawn pan conveyor. For the Shah Cement project Aumund India will deliver two type BWZ bucket elevators.
Turkey: Aumund Fördertechnik has received orders from Çimsa Cimento and Baticim. Çimsa Cimento has now ordered about 60 machines for cement plants in Eskisehir and Niğde. Baticim has order 41 machines for its cement plant in Söke.
By the end of 2016 Aumund will supply the Eskisehir plant with six central chain bucket elevators, with centre distances between 25 - 68m and capacities from 40 - 400t/hr. The package also comprises 10 belt bucket elevators with centre distances between 17 - 95m and capacities from 200 - 350t/hr. Also six Aumund 800mm pan conveyors with centre distances between 15 - 47m and capacities from 150 - 250t/hr were ordered.

The order also comprises six belt bucket elevators with centre distances between 31 - 91m and capacities from 250 - 350t/hr. To convey clinker a bucket apron conveyor with a centre distance of 40m and a capacity of 250t/hr will be used. The clinker dust will be transported by three trough chain conveyors.
Batisöke Söke Cimento will take delivery in mid-2017 of 14 central chain bucket elevators, with centre distances between 22 - 43m and capacities from 130 - 600t/hr. The order also comprises five belt bucket elevators with centre distances between 60 - 125m and capacities from 300 - 650t/hr, and 15 Aumund pan conveyors with widths ranging from 800 - 1400mm, centre distances between 49 - 146m and capacities from 300 - 600t/hr.

UK: SEA-Invest has placed an order for an Eco Hopper from Samson Materials Handling, part of Aumund Group, destined for operation in the Ivory Coast. This product is designed to receive dry bulk materials such as cement clinker, limestone, gypsum and slag from a mobile harbour crane. The Eco Hopper will discharge onto a high-level quayside conveyor at a rate of 1200t/hour or via a dedicated outlet direct to trucks at 700t/hour.
“In a competitive market we need to ensure our service offering is reliable and value for money. Environmental responsibility is something that we take seriously at SEA-Invest.

Saudi Arabia: Aumund Fördertechnik and Sweidan Industrial Services have opened new spare parts stock at their Riyadh warehouse. In addition a local Aumund supervisor will be present to support customers.
Uzbekistan/Jamaica: Schade Lagertechnik has announced details of orders its has received from the cement industry from Kyzylkumzement in Uzbekistan and from Caribbean Cement in Jamaica.
In July 2016 Scaahde won a contract to supply two bridge type reclaimers and a stacker to Kyzylkumzement in Uzbekistan. The two reclaimers, each with a capacity of 1000t/hr and a rail span of 30m, and the 1200t/hr stacker will be delivered in the autumn of 2017 so that the plant can be commissioned in early 2018. The project is being supported with the aid of World Bank financing.
The order is part of the modernisation and improvement of cement plants that was called for two years ago by the Uzbek construction materials collective, Uzstroymateriali. This investment programme comprises nine projects for modernisation and reconstruction of plant at three of the largest cement works in the country, Kyzylkumzement in Nawoi, Akhangaranzement in the Tashkent region and Bekabadzement also in the Tashkent region. The investment volume at Kyzylkumzement alone is in the order of US$40m. Currently there are six cement plants in Uzbekistan with a total installed capacity of around 8Mt/yr.
Schade will also supply a full-portal reclaimer for limestone, with a capacity of 700t/hour and a rail span of 42m, to Caribbean Cement in Jamaica in the autumn of 2017. The project phase leading up to this order had been going on for almost 20 years. Rather than investing in a new machine, the initial plan was to convert an existing one. In the end the management decided that the purchase of a new machine would be more economical than incorporating all the required modifications into the existing machine.
Schade Lagertechnik produces equipment for bulk material stockyards and blending bed technology. It is part of the Aumund Group.
