The United Cement Company of Nigeria, a consortium consisting of the companies Lafarge and Holcim has ordered the largest Loesche mill to date, an LM 70.4+4. As cement producers are continuing to require an increase for mill output, the Duesseldorf/Germany based company has adapted its well-proven module concept to this greater mill output. Now, alongside the mill types with 2+2 and 3+3 rollers, the customer can also use a mill with 4+4 rollers. In order to meet these demands, Loesche will use the COPE gearbox developed in cooperation with Renk, which offers a redundancy of up to 8 motors at the motor end. With all 8 motors in operation, a total capacity of 8.8 MW is achieved. The new mill with an output of 370 t/h 4700 Blaine will be used in UNICEM Nigeria’s new line in Calabar/Southern Nigeria. The delivery period is 14 months.
