Algeria: Fives installed the first FCB B cement grinding mill in early April 2017 at Entreprise des Ciments et Dérivés d’El Chellif’s (ECDE) 6000t/day clinker production line at Chlef. Installation of the mill followed the erection of the FCB kiln (Ø 5.1 x L 82m) in February 2017. A heavy lifting jack crane system sliding on rails was required to install the 4.8 x 17.8m shell and 98.5t gearbox inside its specific finished building. Grinding mills no. 2 and no. 3 will be installed next to complete the cement grinding mills at the unit. Once complete it will include three 160t/hr FCB B-mills with 5320kW drives and associated FCB TSV4500 HF classifiers. ECDE is a member of the industrial group Ciments d’Algérie (GICA).
