Pakistani Kohat Cement Company Ltd. has recently ordered as many as four vertical roller mills (VRM) from Loesche in order to expand their cement plant in Kohat, 160 km west of the capital city of Islamabad.
The order comprises a 4-roller raw material mill with a material throughput of 500 t/h and two cement mills each with a grinding capacity of 210 t/h of Portland cement. The order is finally complemented by another vertical roller mill for grinding 50 t/h of anthracite.
The concept of purchasing all mills from a single source has proven to be effective once again with this perfectly matched set of four mills for equipping a complete cement production line. The lead time in this case is also only eight months.
Together with the positive experience with Loesche mills that are already reliably in use at Kohat Cement, this has not only won over the end customer: in fact the same applies for Loesche’s contract customers, planners and installers of the new plant, the Chinese company Sinoma International Engineering (NDI). Loesche has been successfully cooperating with the renowned contract partner specialised in the planning of cement plants for many years in numerous cement projects.
At its plant of the same name, Kohat Cement works with a current annual production capacity of around 2.8 million t of Portland and white cement per year. With the newly constructed line, the daily capacity is now set to be expanded by 7800 t of Portland cement.
