Gerald Ondrey

ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions AG (Essen, Germany;, the ThyssenKrupp Group's plant engineering specialist, has received an order from Al Sawfa Cement Co. (Saudi Arabia) to build a complete cement production line. The order is worth around €100 million. The new 5,300 ton/d cement-clinker production plant will be constructed parallel to the existing line in Jabal Farasan, approximately 150 km north-east of Jeddah. Likewise supplied by ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, this cement production line has been in operation since 2009.

ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions is supplying all components for the new cement line in Jabal Farasan, from the raw material preparation system, to the clinker manufacturing process, to the cement loading facility. Commissioning is planned for 2016.

The main components comprise: a crushing plant (1,700 ton/h), a storage facility for additives (with a storage capacity of 5 x 8,000 tons), a blending bed, as well as a raw material grinding plant with ball mill and a Polysius Sepol separator (390 ton/h), and, for raw meal storage, a blending silo with a capacity of 15,000 tons.

The Polysius kiln line will consist of a 5-stage preheater with Prepol AS-CC, the Polro rotary kiln and a PolyTrack cooler with intermediate crusher. Cement grinding will take place in two ball mills with Sepol high-efficiency separators. The plant will be rounded off with a cement silo (with a capacity of 6,000 tons) as well as cement packing and loading facilities.
