Loesche wins Holcim Ecuador VRM contract
Published: 25 April 2013


Loesche will deliver one LM 56.4 vertical roller mill for cement raw material grinding to Holcim Ecuador's cement plant Guayaquil. The order with Loesche was placed by general contractor Sinoma-TJ (CBMI), who is supplying the Guayaquil works with a new 4500tpd kiln line.

The mill will be used to grind cement raw material and has been designed for a capacity of 386tph and a fineness of 12 per cent R0.09mm. The mill motor capacity will be 4000kW. For Holcim an important fact in favour of this Loesche mill was the realisation of a unification concept.

This concept is based on interchangeability of the mill modules as well as of the gearboxes which will be identical to the existing Loesche cement mill Type LM 56.3+3. Holcim will benefit from spare part pooling. The cement mill is in operation in Guayaquil since 2010.

Delivery is planned at the end of 2013.
