CalPortland® has awarded a supply contract to FLSmidth for their Mojave Raw Mill Project. The scope of supply includes engineering, equipment and installation of a new OK® 48-4 Raw Mill with a Condition Monitoring System and an ECS/ProcessExpert system.
CalPortland has a history of commitment to sustainability and energy-efficiency. The pursuit of sustainable production was a key driver in CalPortland’s decision to purchase an FLSmidth OK Cement Mill for their Mojave plant in 2004. As it was then, efficiency was a key differentiator in the selection of the OK Raw Mill. As both mills share the same gearbox design, the plant can streamline maintenance and better manage inventory costs by sharing the one spare FLSmidth MAAG WPU-200 assembly.
Despite the challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, both parties committed to seeing this partnership realized. The mill is scheduled to be in operation in late 2021.
