Aumund successful in semi-turnkey project for the Vassiliko Cement Works in Cyprus

Under the technical leadership of ­Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH, the ­Cypriot cement producer, Vassiliko Cement Works, is constructing over the next 18 months an additional clinker silo with a capacity of around 100 000 t, at its works close to the coastal town of ­Limassol. Vassiliko ­Cement has made considerable investments over the past ten years, installing a cement grinding plant with vertical mill, a kiln line with a capacity for 2 million t/a of clinker, and a clinker silo with a capacity of 100 000 t. The plant was first established here in 1963, and Vassiliko has been operating it since 2011 with a kiln capacity of 6000 t/d. Approximately 50 % of the production is exported through its own port.

Under a semi-turnkey contract covering the construction of the additional clinker silo, complete with conveyor bridges, transfer towers, superstructures, loading silos and supports, Aumund is responsible for the technical organisation and coordination. Back in 2008 A­umund had already acquired the order to supply conveying equipment for clinker.

KZB pan conveyors with a capacity of up to 600 t/h are used for the transportation of clinker from the kiln to the clinker silo and from the clinker silo to the loading silos. Material chutes and feed points are equipped with filters to keep the plant substantially dust-free.

Aumund’s scope of supply and services also includes all drive units and instrumentation as well as the complete plant design and the supervision of all installation work on site up to commissioning of the clinker transportation and silo system.

The earthworks and concreting for the silo foundations will be carried out by ­local companies. Site work began in September 2016 and the commissioning of the complete clinker transportation and storage system is planned for the end of 2017.
