Kenya: Mombasa Cement has ordered a MVR 3750 C-4 type vertical roller mill from Germany’s Gebr. Pfeiffer. It will be used to grind cement on the second production line it is building at its integrated Vipingo plant. The mill has a drive power of 2900kW to produce 150t/hr of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). Delivery will be coordinated between Gebr. Pfeiffer’s Indian subsidiary and its headquarters in Kaiserslautern, Germany. No value for the order has been disclosed.
The cement producer has previously ordered two cement mills from Gebr. Pfeiffer. In January 2016 it ordered a type MVR 3750 C-4 vertical mill for the Tororo plant in Uganda. In June 2016 it ordered a Ready2Grind type MVR 1800 C-4 mill for its Vipingo plant. The latest order at Vipingo has the same design as the mill in Uganda.
