After three successfully completed projects by the Intercem Group (Cimfaso & Cimasso/Burkina Faso and CimIvoire/Ivory Coast), a further contract was awarded to Intercem by the CimMetal Group in January 2020. This involves a cement grinding plant in Lomé/Togo with a production capacity of 2.5 million t/a.
The order includes a truck unloading station of 1000 t/h, a storage facility for additives of 25 000 t/h, a truck loading station of 1000 t/h, 2 x 50 000 t clinker silos, 4 x Rotopacker, 8 x truck loading stations, 10 x truck scales and the corresponding laboratory equipment.
The steel construction, the entire sheet metal fabrication, the subsystems, the electrical equipment, the complete engineering, the supervision of erection and commissioning are also included in the scope of supply and services. The entire equipment is supplied exclusively by renowned European manufacturers.
All material conveyor belts are mounted in a closed gallery to ensure dust-free transport. This was planned because of the sensitive location in the immediate vicinity of the port in Lomé. The belt system is also designed for fully automatic ship unloading.
The opening ceremony will take place at short notice and production is scheduled to start in Q1/2021.
