Loesche receives follow-on order for a vertical roller mill for the cement works Haria in Bangladesh

For the Aman Group cement works, ­Haria 2 in Narayangonj – 20 km to the south of Dhaka, capital of Bangladesh – Loesche has received the order to supply a vertical roller mill of type LM 56.3+3 CS. The roller mill has a production capacity of 240 t/h Portland & Composite cement clinker with a fineness of 3200 Blaine or 175 t/h GGBFS (Ground-granulated blastfurnace slag) with a fineness of 4500 Blaine – as well as a drive power of 5300 KW. In addition to the mill, the scope of supply also includes additional technical equipment for the grinding plant such as e.g. rotary feed, 2-way chute, metal detector and permanent magnet drum separator.

The contractor for this order is the China National Heavy Machinery Corporation (CHMC). One of the decisive reasons for placing the order with Loesche was CHMC’s and Aman Group’s satisfaction with the first Loesche mill LM 56.3+3 CS, already supplied in 2014 for the Haria Line 1, and further mills of this type, which have proven themselves operationally in other cement works. With the second Loesche mill, supplied in late 2016, the Aman Group plans to further increase the production capacity of its large 70 000 m2 plant from currently 10000 t/d, as Bangladesh currently has the worldwide lowest consumption of cement per capita but at the same time it is one of the most strongly growing markets globally. Therefore, the country increasingly imports clinker from e.g. China, Indonesia or Thailand.

However, the government now wants to increase Bangladesh’s own cement production by increasing import duties, and thereby reduce the country’s dependency on imports. The Haria cement works owned by the Aman Group Ltd. conglomerate is to make a contribution in this regard. The Aman Group is ­represented in the areas of cement and steel manufacture, packaging and food as well as shipyards and the power plant industry. The plant is located in the 90 hectare Industrial/Economic Zone Narayanganj, which is planned to become the new economic hub of the country.
