On the 1 of July 2010, Votorantim Cimentos, the leading cement company in Brazil, awarded Loesche the complete supply of another three cement raw material mills to be installed in the huge cement plant expansion plan which will be implemented during the next few years.
On the occasion of signing the contracts, Dr. Loesche personally flew to Brazil to extend the long-term relationship with the Votorantim group.
The new contract includes a raw mill of type LM 45.4 with a capacity 264tph to be installed in a new clinker production line of 3000tpd in Bahia state, north eastern Brazil. Two further raw mills of type LM 53.6, each for a capacity of 440tph, will be working respectively in a new clinker line of 5000tpd in Goias state, near the capital and also for a new 5000t/d kiln line in the state of Parana, in the southern part of Brazil. It is worth noting that the raw mills will work with the kiln lines awarded to FLSmidth.
