Southern Province Cement Co. (SPCC) is building a new brownfield cement line in Bisha, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with a clinker production capacity of 5000 tpd. The complete plant delivery and execution has been contracted to China National Building Materials Group Corporation (CNBM) from China. SPCC decided to install and operate the first two vertical roller mills for cement grinding in the Kingdom. Those cement mills are both Loesche type LM 56.3+3 with a rated capacity of a minimum of 200 tph.
In addition to that, SPCC wanted to be ready for a changing market, requiring not only simple OPC cements but also various types of additive cements with a wide band of different product finenesses.
For the grinding of cement raw material SPCC has also decided in favor of a Loesche VRM, type LM 56.4.
