Bursa Çimento Fabrikasi A.S. is upgrading its entire cement plant in Bursa to the latest technical standards in order to reduce CO₂ emissions and energy consumption to a minimum. The Turkish company has ordered 26 machines from Aumund Fördertechnik in Rheinberg/Germany for this modernisation. The equipment will be supplied in January 2023.
The objective of this investment by Bursa Çimento is to create a showcase facility for the Turkish cement industry. Aumund equipment and technology will help achieve this goal, with the supply of six Belt Bucket Elevators, four Chain Bucket Elevators, seven Pan Conveyors, three Arched Plate Conveyors, three Spillage Conveyors and three Drag Chain Conveyors. The machines will be used throughout the production process from raw material preparation to clinker grinding.
The conveying capacities of the 26 machines range from 14 t/h right up to 808 t/h. Three of the Belt Bucket Elevators will be equipped by Aumund with its digital maintenance system Premas® 4.0 Predictive Maintenance Solution. Various Chain Bucket Elevators and a Bucket Apron Conveyor from Aumund are already in operation at Bursa Cement.
