June 2016, Sinoma International Engineering announced that its
subsidiary, Chengdu Design & Research Institute of Building Materials
Industry (CDI) had signed a contract with the Egyptian government to
build six production lines for clinker of 6,000 tpd each, in Beni Suef.
AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH, in close cooperation with its Chinese
subsidiary AUMUND Beijing, has now won the order to supply the clinker
conveying equipment for the project.
Egypt, with a capacity of 70 million tonnes, is one of the world’s biggest
producers of clinker. Around 52 - 54 million tonnes of cement are consumed
annually in Egypt. The identical lines will each be equipped by AUMUND with
four BWG belt bucket elevators, with capacities up to 650 t/h and three BWZ
chain bucket elevators (up to 550 t/h).
The machinery package also includes four BWG-L belt bucket elevators (170
t/h) one BWZ-L chain bucket elevator (80 t/h) as well as six pan conveyors
(375 t/h), for each of the six lines.
The new greenfield project in Beni Suef is to be fully completed within the next
three years. The pilot phase of the new production lines is due to start as early
as December 2017.
AUMUND Fördertechnik will supply these 108 Machines to Egypt in three
deliveries, between April and June 2017.
