A TEC, the Austrian specialist for pyroprocess optimization and consultancy in the cement industry, Unitherm Cemcon Feuerungsanlagen GmbH, one of the leading suppliers of firing systems for the cement, lime and mineral industry opened up a joint office in Beijing, China, together with Belstroycenter, a Belarusian engineering company on 13th October 2009.
The focus of A TEC China is consultancy and project management. With a subsidiary office in Beijing, A TEC is buiding a bridge between Europe and China with regards to technology, management and manufacturing control for cement plant investors. Currently, A TEC Asia is involved in two main engineering consultancy projects. One of these projects concerns Strabag SE, one of Europe’s leading construction groups, which decided to invest in a new cement plant in Hungary. CBMI, a Chinese plant construction company, is supplying the main mechanical equipment. Key process equipment will be delivered by European companies (i.e. A TEC, IKN, Loesche, Siemens). A TEC was chosen as the overall consultant and supervisor from the initiation of the project throughout the complete project realization period. Unitherm is the supplier of the firing system for the above mentioned-project.
With the Beijing joint office, A TEC has also enhanced its possibilities to work closely together with Belstroycenter. A TEC provides consultancy and technical services (engineering, quality, manufacturing and shipment control) for the construction of Belarusian cement plants (three new kiln lines with 5000 t/d each). In cooperation with Belstroycenter, A TEC is also in the position of supplying those services to Russian speaking clients.
Unitherm Cemcon has also already realized several projects for the Chinese cement industry in the past (CBMI, CNBMC etc.). At the moment, the next generation of the Unitherm M.A.S. burner is being developed in the head office in Austria. After successful trials in the Austrian workshop and the field, the burner will be promoted in the Chinese market as well as in the rest of the world.
