KHD as supplier for modernization project of clinker production line in Argentina
Holcim Argentina, a member of Lafarge-Holcim, awarded Humboldt Wedag GmbH a supply contract for the revamping of its Malagueño clinker production line located close to Córdoba/Argentina. Holcim Argentina will recommission its mothballed production line of 1650 t/d, which was originally supplied by Humboldt Wedag in the early 1980s.
