UltraTech Cement Ltd, part of the Aditya Birla Group and the largest cement manufacturer in India, placed an order for 45 bucket elevators with Beumer.
Beumer has already supplied systems to this producer for plants in Tadipatri, Kotputli and Aditya.
UltraTech is building two cement plants in Rajshree, near Gulbarga (Karnataka), and in Rawan (Chhattisgarh) – each in uninhabited areas abundant in limestone. Both cement plants are intended to transport 12,000tpd. Additionally, the cement manufacturer is building five grinding plants near cities and metropolitan areas to be nearer its customer base.
By the end of 2011, all bucket elevators will be on location. Depending on the construction progress, commissioning will take a total of 1-2 years.
