Sweden: Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has received an order for a road-mobile ship unloader for an undisclosed client. The 10 000 S trailer-based, diesel-powered unit will be used to unload cement at a rated capacity of 300t/hr. It will join the customer's existing Siwertell 10 000 S road-mobile unloader, which it has been operating since 2015.
The new unit will be equipped with a dust filter and a double-bellows system, allowing uninterrupted discharge when changing between trucks or rail wagons. It will be constructed at Siwertell's premises in Bjuv, Sweden, with delivery scheduled for March 2017. The customer has also signed a Siwertell Service Contract for both units to cover servicing and support.
Kuwait: Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has signed a contract with Acico Construction for its third road-mobile cement unloader. Similar to its last delivery in 2015, the road-mobile unloader will be a trailer-based, diesel-powered Siwertell 10 000 S unit. It will be fitted with dust filters and a double bellows system and like its predecessor will have a rated capacity of 300t/hr. Acico also operates a Siwertell 5 000 S unit, which was delivered in 2014.
The new unit will be built at Siwertell's premises in Bjuv, Sweden and delivered by the end of the first quarter of 2017. It will operate in Kuwait's second largest port, Shuaiba, located south of Kuwait City.
Acico Construction, part of Acico Industries Company, was founded in 1990 and has experienced sustained and steady growth. Its third Siwertell unit has been ordered so that the company can focus its operations on the increasing number of larger vessels, up to 10,000t, that it now handles. It also uses a two-year Siwertell Care maintenance support contract, signed in 2015, to cover Acico's first two road-mobile units. The agreement includes an ongoing training element for Acico maintenance staff, covering mechanical and electrical systems and instrumentation.
Finland: Logistics company RL-Trans has ordered a Dino DS400 mobile bulk truck loader. The loader has loading bellows and a capacity of 90m³/hr. The Dino can be used to fill 53t into extra-large bulk trucks, such as those used in Finland, within two hours. Following the completion of a bulk terminal RL-Trans wanted to be able to deliver packed bulk goods. It then made the order via screw conveyor manufacturer Van Beek based in the Netherlands.
UK: Greenbank has supplied a GWF feeder system to Hanson Cement’s Padeswood plant in Flintshire. The system is designed to feed raw materials into the processing plant at a predetermined rate. The upgrade is part of a recent series of expansions.
“The constant and reliable feed rate of the GWF feeder is achieved by having a shear gate to set a constant material bed depth for the given particle size combined with an inverter drive to control the feeder belt speed,” said Rod Molyneux, Product Sales Engineer at Greenbank.
Greenbank Group has previously supplied the plant with wear-resistant pipework and a pipe system for a new shredded refuse fuel line into a processing kiln.
Bangladesh: Loesche has received an order to supply a 56.3+3 CS type vertical roller mill for the Aman Group’s Haria 2 cement plant at Narayangonj near Dhaka. The contractor for this order is the China National Heavy Machinery Corporation (CHMC). It follows a previous order by the Aman Group for a Loesche LM 56.3+3 CS mill that was supplied in 2014 for the Haria 1 line. The new mill was supplied in late 2016.
The roller mill for the Haria 2 line has a production capacity of 240t/hour for Portland and composite cement clinker with a fineness of 3200 Blaine or 175t/hour of ground-granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS) with a fineness of 4500 Blaine. It has a drive power of 5300kW. In addition to the mill, the scope of supply also specifies additional technical equipment for the grinding plant including a rotary feed, a two-way chute, a metal detector and a permanent magnet drum separator.
Iran: The Ministry of Roads & Urban Development Iran has agreed to purchase 2Mt of cement from local producers. Iran's Bank Maskan, also known as the Housing Bank, will finance the road building plan and the cement producers will receive the money in cash, according to Abdolreza Sheikhan, secretary of Iran's Cement Industry Employers Association. He added, in comments to the Tasnim news agency, that he hoped the money will ease stagnation in the Iranian cement industry. Sheikhan also commented on plans to export cement to Syria and talks to remove a ban of imports of Iranian cement in Iraq.
Belgium: Gebr Pfeiffer has received an order from Cemminerals to supply a grinding plant for slag and cement. The plant, in Flanders, will use a MVR 5300 C-6 type mill. The order was taken in December 2016 and the mill is scheduled for commissioning in early 2018.
The Pfeiffer MVR 5300 C-6 slag and cement mill will be used to grind five different cement qualities as well as pure slag to three different fineness degrees. The mill is guaranteed to achieve capacities of 132t/hour pure slag, ground to 5000cm²/g acc. to Blaine, and of up to 200t/hour CEM II, ground to a fineness of 3500cm²/g acc. to Blaine. The mill main drive is designed for an installed power of 4600kW, and the SLS 4750 BC high-efficiency classifier, mounted on top of the MVR mill, enables high material fineness degrees of up to 5000cm²/g acc. to Blaine.
In addition to the MVR mill the contract includes handling equipment, two in-feed devices to enable moist slag and dry clinker to be fed to the mill separately, the plant filter, the plant fan, the magnetic drum separator and all ductwork including chutes, expansion joints and the stack. The scope of supply also includes a hot gas generator for the heating of the mill, as well as all electrical drives, starters, frequency converters and the electrical switchgear.
Pakistan: Maple Leaf Cement has ordered a 7300t/day cement production line from FLSmidth. The plant will be located in Iskanderabad in the Mianwali District. The order has been placed at above Euro75m and it will be completed by the end of 2018.

"This is the latest project to underline FLSmidth's strength as the leading supplier of the most productive and energy-efficient equipment and technology - and our position as the preferred supplier of complete production lines to the Pakistani cement industry," said FLSmidth’s Group Executive Vice President, Cement Division, Per Mejnert Kristensen.
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.
