A TEC GRECO Supplies a Modification Engineering and further Equipment for Lafarge Cement Plants in Iraq

The international well-known grey cement supplier Lafarge decided to equip his plants in Bazian and Tasluja, in the north of Iraq near Sulaimaniyah, with a new heavy fuel oil system. The existing heavy fuel oil system is only designed for high-quality heavy fuel oil. Due to strong varying HFO qualities, modification of the existing system was required.

The new heavy fuel oil system was designed to achieve the following performance:

·         Efficient and reliable operation – independent from the available heavy fuel oil quality

·         To store high-quality and low quality heavy fuel oil separately

·         To excrete impurities and sediments from the delivered low quality heavy fuel oil

·         Full automatic fuel management system (FMS) for the HFO supply

The international purchasing department of Lafarge Iraq searched for a supplier which can design, deliver and install turnkey such a high end system and furthermore is able to support with his know-how, experience and service for a successful and fast project implementation.

A TEC GRECO, specialist in combustion engineering and supply systems, won the project and started to investigate the old existing systems of both plants. A part of this investigation is to clarify which parts of the existing equipment can be used and which parts must be renewed.

The result of this study was a tailor made solution for the modification of the existing HFO supply system. The new A TEC GRECO high and low quality heavy fuel oil supply system will be commissioned during the summer kiln stoppage 2013.
