Çimko Çimento chooses FLSmidth as supplier for grey-to-white cement conversion project

FLSmidth will deliver a grey-to-white cement line conversation to the Turkish cement producer, Çimko Çimento. The project is based on FLSmidth’s unique competences within process design and includes product engineering and equipment, such as the FLSmidth DuoflexTM burner, a Rotary cooler and a OKTM Raw Mill. The project is expected to be commissioned in early 2022.

Work will start later this year at Çimko Çimento’s existing production line, located near Adiyaman in southeastern Turkey. Once completed, the upgraded line will offer Çimko Çimento new opportunities to expand its product range and enter new markets. White cement is especially sought-after in countries with relatively hot climates, as it tends to keep buildings cooler with its reflective characteristics. In addition, as a high-quality, value-added product, white cement is often used in the construction of innovative buildings and important landmarks.

FLSmidth brings significant experience and know-how to the project, having conducted several similar grey-to-white conversions in recent years, including projects with Turkey-based Adana Cement and Eskisehir Cement, as well as Alsafwa Cement Company and Riyadh Cement Company in Saudi Arabia.

Apart from the grey-to-white conversion, the project includes an order for the energy-efficient OK Raw Mill, which is part of FLSmidth’s MissionZero flagship product line. The OK Mill uses 5 to 10% less power than other vertical roller mills and 30 to 50% less energy than conventional ball mills. Due to its reliability and energy efficiency, the OK Raw Mill has proven very successful in Turkey, Çimko Çimento’s being the third sold in the country in recent years.
