GPSE MVR mill for the Lafarge Exshaw expansion project

Lafarge Canada Inc. has contracted with Gebr. Pfeiffer, Inc., a subsidiary of Gebr. Pfeiffer SE, with headquarters in Kaiserslautern/Germany, for the installation of the MVR 5000 R-4 vertical roller mill as part of the Exshaw expansion project. The 109-year-old Exshaw cement plant is located just west of E­xshaw, Alberta/Canada, at the edge of the Rocky Mountains, approximately 80 km west of Calgary. By installing the new mill technology, Lafarge will be able to increase capacity as they modernize the plant. Some of the advantages of the MVR roller mill include short change-over time from direct to compound operation, good partial load behaviour and low electric energy consumption.
Gebr. Pfeiffer’s scope on the project will include the MVR 5000 R-4 VRM, 3300 kW motor, engineering, supply and related ser­vices. Commissioning for this project is planned for early 2015.
