Chengdu Design & Research Institute of Building Materials Industry Co. Ltd., belonging to the Chinese Sinoma Group and acting as General Contractor for a new cement production line in the West African Togo, has ordered an MPS 5000 B vertical roller mill for raw material grinding at Gebr. Pfeiffer SE. The grinding plant will be set up in a greenfield 5000-t/d cement production line owned by Scantogo, a member of the HeidelbergCement Group. The mill will have a rated capacity of 410 t/h and has been especially designed to cope with the possibility that raw material with a particularly high moisture content of 15 % may be ground.
Apart from the supply of the core components for the grinding plant, the order includes the supply of workshop drawings to enable the local manufacture of mill components and the supervision of manufacture at Chinese workshops. The mill is scheduled to be delivered in the 3rd quarter of 2013.
