Aumund equipment for six new clinker production lines in Beni Suef/Egypt

In June 2016, Sinoma International Engineering announced that its subsidiary, the Chengdu Design & Research Institute of the Building Materials I­ndustry (CDI) signed a contract with the Egyptian government to build six clinker production lines of 6000 t/d each, in Beni Suef. In January 2017 Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH, in close cooperation with its Chinese subsidiary Aumund Beijing, received the order to supply the clinker conveying equipment for the project.

Egypt, with a capacity of 70 million t, is one of the world’s biggest producers of clinker. Around 52-54 million t of cement are consumed annually in Egypt. The identical lines will each be equipped by Aumund with four BWG belt bucket elevators, with capacities up to 650 t/h and three BWZ chain bucket elevators (up to 550 t/h).

The machinery package also includes four BWG-L belt bucket elevators (170 t/h) one BWZ-L chain bucket elevator (80 t/h) as well as six pan conveyors (375 t/h), for each of the six lines.

The new greenfield project in Beni Suef is to be fully completed within the next three years. The pilot phase of the new production lines is due to start as early as December 2017. Aumund Fördertechnik will supply these 108 Machines to Egypt in three deliveries, between April and June 2017
