At the end of 2005, FCB.Ciment received a new order for a Horomill®.
Konya Cimento, a subsidiary of the Vicat Group, signed a new contract with FCB.Ciment on 23rd December 2005 to install a Horomill® 3800 grinding plant to increase the cement production of its Konya plant in Turkey.
This Horomill® can produce 115tph of CEM I 42,5 cement but will also produce, in a fully automatic mode, three other different cement qualities.
Further to the installation by Konya Cimento in 1999 of its first Horomill® 3800, the strategic nature of this contract lies in the purchase by this Vicat Group subsidiary of a similar mill to increase the cement production of its plant while achieving a substantial energy saving compared to other conventional mills.
This new reference raises the number of Horomill® references to 38 all over the world, including six in Turkey.
