ThyssenKrupp receives order to build cement plant in Colombia

ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, the plant engineering and construction specialist of the ThyssenKrupp Group, has received an order to build a cement clinker production line from Cem­entos Argos, one of the biggest cement producers in Colombia and one of the biggest in the Caribbean. The new 4300 t/d facility will be built in Sogamoso, around 200 km north east of the capital Bogotá, in the province of Boyacá. The contract is worth around € 100 million.

For the new cement line in Sogamoso ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions is supplying all components for clinker production as well as quality assurance and monitoring systems. Startup of the line is planned for the end of 2017.

The main components are a 1200 t/h primary crusher for limestone, a 500 t/h secondary crusher for raw material, and a 40 000 t capacity circular blending bed. The raw material will be ground in a Quadropol QMR2 roller mill with a throughput of 355 t/h and stored in a 7000 t capacity homogenizing silo.

The kiln line comprises a five-stage, single-string preheater with Prepol AS-MSC calciner, a Polflame-VN rotary kiln with sinter zone burner, and a Po­lytrack clinker cooler. A further Quadropol QMK2 roller mill with a throughput of 26 t/h of coal will be supplied for preparing the fuel. A Polcid process control system and a Polab APMplus laboratory automation system will be installed for quality monitoring and control.

During construction and commissioning ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions will provide construction management services, consulting services and supervision. During operation of the plant the company will provide assistance in the form of operation & maintenance support services as well as training of operating personnel.
