Siemens delivers drive systems for clinker production

The cement producer Thai TPI Polene Public Company Limited has placed an order with Siemens for engineering and supply of the power distribution system and drives for the new clinker production line in Saraburi, Thailand. The deal for the drive systems covers 20 slip-ring rotor motors for the main drives, twelve gear units, 33 variable-speed drives for fans and two multiple drive systems for cooling units. Operation is due to commence in October 2014.

The Thai cement producer has decided to add a fourth production line at the factory to boost production capacity in view of rising demand. The new line will have a capacity of 12 000 tonnes of clinker per day. Upon completion, the four cement production lines at TPI Polene in Thailand will have a combined capacity of 12 million tonnes per year.
