LOESCHE supplies complete grinding equipment for Dangote’s cement plant in Ethiopia
On behalf of Dangote Industries (Ethiopia) PLC the management of Sinoma International Engineering Co. Ltd (NCDRI) will rely exclusively on Loesche grinding technology.
For the new grinding plant Menagasha in Ethiopia Sinoma International Engineering Co. Ltd (NCDRI) who has for many years been a customer in favor for Loesche Mills has once again decided for Loesche’s vertical roller mills. For this project four Loesche Mills will be included in the process: for the raw material grinding plant one Loesche Mill Type LM 69.6 will be installed for the grinding of cement raw material at a product range of 450 t/h (max. 490 t/h) with a fineness of 10% R DIN 0,09 mm. The mill motor capacity for the LM 69.6 will be 6.000 kW.
One Loesche Mill Type LM 28.3D for the coal grinding plant will implemented to grind local and imported steam coal. The product range of this vertical roller mill will be 50 t/h with a fineness of 12 % R DIN 0,09 mm. The mill motor capacity for the LM 28.3D will be 800 kW.
Clinker with components such as gypsum, limestone and pumice will be ground in the two Loesche Mills Type LM 53.3+3C to be erected in the clinker grinding plant. The product rate of clinker type CEM I A-L 42,5 will be 155-168 t/h at 3.200 Blaine while the product rate of clinker type CEM II 32,5 will be 230 t/h at 3.500 Blaine. The mill motor capacity for the LM 53.3+3C will be 4.650 kW.
Both, the plant elevation of 2.600 m above sea level as well as the very bad grindability of the cement raw material were a special challenge for the layout of the grinding equipment.
Additionally to the mills and the mill motors Loesche will deliver metal detectors and mill rotary feeders. The supply is a split-up of Loesche key parts and a Chinese manufactured portion arranged by Sinoma International under supervision of Loesche.
Delivery is scheduled at the beginning of 2014.
