Cementos Moctezuma renews its confidence in Fives for the supply of a new FCB Horomill® in Mexico

With fourteen machines already installed in Mexico, Cementos Moctezuma S.A. de C.V. has once again selected the FCB Horomill technology to increase the cement production capacity of its Tepetzingo plant.

Cementos Moctezuma and Fives FCB signed a contract for the supply of one FCB Horomill 3800 grinding mill and associated supervisory services for erection & commissioning.

A long and successful collaboration

The collaboration between Fives and Cementos Moctezuma is a success story. During 29 years of collaboration, the company has already purchased 14 FCB Horomill and played a fundamental role in the development of this unique Fives innovation.

From the outset, Cementos Moctezuma made the choice to opt for the most virtuous and frugal mill on the market, producing unrivalled cement quality with no need for water and the lowest power consumption on the market.

During a recent trip to Mexico, Frédéric Sanchez, President of Fives group and Alain Cordonnier, President of the Cement, Minerals & Sugar Division, recognized this long history and presented an honorary award to Jose Maria Barroso, President of Cementos Moctezuma (controlled by Buzzi Unicem and Cementos Molins), Mexico‘s fourth-largest cement manufacturer and third-largest concrete producer.

The most energy-efficient grinding mill

Cementos Moctezuma has again chosen the FCB Horomill for extending its cement grinding capacity in the Tepetzingo Plant, Morelos. Teptzingo is the plant where the first FCB Horomill 3800 was installed in 1994.

The existing 14 mills have been operating successfully since their commissioning and still provide the lowest electrical consumption in the market. These grinding mills installed on three Cementos Moctezuma sites have accumulated over 1500000 h of operation to the end of 2022.

Furthermore, the mills cope with the latest cement quality requirements and new types of cement recipes to reduce the carbon footprint of the plant. The mills have also been subjected to various upgrades to further improve their operation, in liaison with Fives FCB Services department. This has been a key factor for this new order.
