New mixing plant in Malaysia built by BT-Wolfgang Binder

In November 2013, Mapei awarded a contract for the construction of a new dry building material mixing plant to the Austrian general contractor BT-Wolfgang Binder GmbH.

The contractor carried out the entire planning, construction, production and delivery of the machines, the silos and the steel structure, including the façade. The silos, the steel structure as well as the tanks and containers were built in Malaysia according to the statics and manufacturing drawings provided by the general contractor. The machines were packed for carriage overseas and dispatched in containers to Malaysia from Koper, Slovenia.

Chief erectors and a supervisor deployed by BT-Wolfgang Binder performed the assembly, assisted by Malaysian personnel. The concrete foundations and the electrical installations were provided by the customer. In mid-October 2014, the plant was successfully handed over and production in Nilai in central Malaysia could begin.

At full capacity, some 35 t of adhesive and mortars can be manufactured in the new factory per hour. The delivered raw materials such as cements, sands and binding agents are being stored in the following silos: four main component silos with a capacity of 60 m³ each as well as six main component silos with a capacity of 12 m³ each. Dosing screws in hopper scales perform the dosing process whereas the dosing of additives is taken care of by small component scales. The plant includes six additive containers with a capacity of 2 m³ each and a fibre box. From the scales, the material is fed into the batch mixer which has a net capacity of 2400 l.

The plant could be handed over and commissioned according to schedule despite the great distances. During hand-over Mapei ordered another dry building material mixing plant for Australia at BT-Wolfgang Binder.
