Modernization at Aalborg Portland A/S

Aalborg Portland A/S of Denmark placed an order with Christian Pfeiffer to upgrade cement mill No. 2 in July 2011. Based in the North of Denmark and part of the Italian Cementir Holding, the company Aalborg Portland A/S is investing in the modernisation of its already existing cement mill which produces high-quality white cement. Besides a distinct improvement in product quality, the main reasons for this decision are to enhance manufacturing efficiency and improve the energy efficiency of the plant.

The scope of the order placed with CPB includes the engineering, the supply of plant and materials handling technology including steel construction, surveillance of the installation work and commissioning of the plant. The core of the plant consists of the high-performance separator QDK107-Z from the latest generation of separators and a process filter for fines separation. Thanks to this concept, it is possible to cool the cement down to a maximum temperature of 70° C as requested by the customer.

Special requirements are placed on the engineering due to the limited space available.

The delivery of the machines is planned for December 2011; the beginning of installation work is scheduled to start on 2nd January 2012. Operational production is expected to start at the beginning of April after the plant has been commissioned.
