The Russian construction company ASK Cement is building a cement plant – literally on a green field – near Yekaterinburg in the Ural region. Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH is significantly involved in the implementation of this greenfield project, currently the only one of its kind in Russia.
Greenfield projects like this one at ASK Cement are rare, because these days new cement lines are usually only built adjacent to existing plants. Aumund developed the concept for the complete clinker conveying package at the plant, together with ASK Cement and its long-time engineering partner, the Sibniiproject Cement Design Institute in Novosibirsk. The concept comprises transportation of clinker from the kiln to the clinker silo, which has five discharge channels, as well as onward conveying to the cement mills. Aumund is supplying Pan Conveyors type KZB and type KZB-Q (with baffles), Bucket Apron Conveyors type BZB, Clinker Silo Discharge Gates type SDG and various chutes. Intercem has also ordered Aumund Chain Bucket Elevators type BWZ for mill circulation and Aumund Belt Bucket Elevators type BWG-L for cement silo feeding for the project. Delivery of the equipment is planned for the end of the first quarter of 2020.
