Arabian Cement Co. (ACC) is planning to build a new brownfield cement line in Rabigh/Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with a clinker production capacity of 10 000 t/d. In order to increase the cement grinding capacities (Phase 1), prior to the completion of the new line (Phase 2), ACC placed an order with the China National Building Materials Group Corporation (CNBM) for a cement grinding plant including two Loesche vertical roller grinding mills.
The project execution will be done on a Fast-Track Concept which ensures a project schedule – from contract effectiveness to PAC – of only 13 months. Loesche will supply two large vertical roller grinding mills of type LM 63.3+3 with a table diameter of 6.3 m and a main drive size of 7400 kW. Under the Fast-Track Concept, Loesche will not only supply the mills but also all process-related equipment like process filters, process fans, hot gas generators, etc, as well as the complete basic engineering of the grinding plant to ensure a state-of-the-art plant design.
