On 01.07.2010, Votorantim Cimentos, the leading cement company in Brazil, awarded Loesche the complete supply of another three cement raw material mills to be installed in the huge cement plant expansion plan which will be implemented during the next few years. The expansion program is needed to take care of the additional cement demand generated by the next soccer championship as well as the next Olympic Games held in Brazil, as well as to strengthen Votorantim`s leadership. The new contract includes a raw mill of type LM 45.4 (Fig.) with a capacity 264 t/h to be installed in a new clinker production line of 3000 t/d in Bahia state, north eastern Brazil. Two further raw mills of type LM 53.6, each for a capacity of 440t/h, will be working respectively in a new clinker line of 5000t/d in Goias state, near the capital and also for a new 5000 t/d kiln line in the state of Parana, in the southern part of Brazil. The raw mills will work with the kiln lines awarded on 1st of July 2010 to the Danish company FLS.
Apart from these new mill orders Loesche GmbH is presently executing the manufacture of another two LM 45.4 raw mills for 2 additional 3000t/d kiln lines as well as a raw mill type LM 56.4 for a 4300t/d kiln line for the Votorantim group.
