AUMUND FÖRDERTECHNIK GMBH | AUMUND FRANCE S.A.R.L.

Order awarded for Aumund machines at LafargeHolcim in France

LafargeHolcim is investing around € 100 million in the modernisation of the Martres-Tolosane cement plant in the South West of France. Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH and Aumund France S.A.R.L. will be accompanying the customer on this ambitious upgrade project until well into 2019, supplying a varied range of equipment. The specialists from Rheinberg and Paris won an open bidding process against several competitors.

Aumund Fördertechnik is supplying a package including belt bucket elevators to feed the 96 m tall heat exchanger and the raw meal silo at the plant. Two Aumund BWZ chain bucket elevators will be used to convey raw meal and filter dust, and for silo feed. An Aumund KZB pan conveyor with a vertical lift of nine metres will be installed under the clinker cooler.

Seven Aumund Louise-type drag chain conveyors with short centre distances of 13 m and conveying capacities between 7 and 50 t/h will extract filter dust. Two Centrex machines (25 – 250t/h) will be extracting a mixture of limestone and clay as well as iron ore from silos up to 7 m high.

The modernisation project at the Martres-Tolosane works is part of LafargeHolcim’s extensive € 300 million investment project in France. Comprehensive measures are being taken with a strong focus on environmental protection to make this plant, with its 110 employees, fit for the future.

Once upgraded, the plant will be equipped to burn alternative fuels, and energy consumption and CO2 emissions will be greatly reduced. Work on the project will start in the final quarter of 2018 and be completed by mid-2020.
