Loesche to supply Saudi Arabia with first VRMs for cement grinding
Published: 13 February 2014


Loesche is to supply the first vertical roller mills for cement grinding in Saudi Arabia having secured an order from Southern Province Cement Co (SPCC) for a new brownfield project.

SPCC is building a new 5000tpd clinker line at Bisha and China’s CNBM has been contracted for delivery and execution of the new line. Two Loesche type LM 56.3+3 VRMs, each with a minimum capacity of 200tph, will be installed at the site. The new mills will enable SPCC to produce OPC cements as well as various additive cements with differing product finenesses at the Bisha plant. Loesche will also supply the Bisha plant with an LM 56.4 mill for cement raw material grinding.

SPCC already operates two Loesche mills for grinding cement raw material at its Tahamah plant, and a third mill is currently being erected at the site.
