Efficiency upgrades at Yanbu cut heat and power consumption

After concluding several successful projects in recent years, including  an automation upgrade and retrofit of the burner system in 2018 and a service agreement in 2019, Yanbu Cement Company (YCC) signed an agreement in early 2020 for a massive efficiency upgrade, focusing on reducing heat and power consumption. 

With increased attention on sustainability in the region, Yanbu, located 400 km north of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, has chosen FLSmidth to provide the equipment and conduct the installation – projected to bring significant reduction in heat and power consumption. The project includes; new top cyclones, cooler modifications and removal of old ESP filters.   

“We are constantly on the lookout for more efficient ways to run the operation. With a project like this, we are not only reducing emissions, we are also cutting costs by minimising heat and power consumption. It is a win-win situation,” explains Amr Nader, COO of Yanbu Cement.

FLSmidth was pleased to receive the order from Yanbu as it was a repeat order from a valued customer.
