Uganda: Intercem has released details on its project to build a cement grinding plant for Kampala Cement. The equipment producer has supplied a 90t/hr cement grinding plant with a ball mill, a clinker storage and four 1000t steel cement silos.
Intercem’s scope of supply included all works except for the foundations. Three separate vibration feeders, two belt conveyors and a bucket elevator were installed. The four silos dispose of truck loading stations and the finished product is transported via air conveyor troughs from the silos to the new packing line. The contract between Kampala Cement and Intercem was originally signed in September 2014.
An additional contract was placed by Kampala Cement at the end of 2015 to order a Pozzolan-Dryer as well as a further storage for primary crushing and drying of the raw material due to the discovery of a higher humidity content of the raw material than originally specified. Construction and installation of these additional assets has finished and the plant including the Pozzolan-Dryer, with a throughput of 40 t/hr, has also been commissioned.
