Siemens has received an order from ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions AG to supply an Integrated Drive System for the expansion of PT Holcim Indonesia Tbk’s cement plant in Java. As one of the top three cement producers in the country, with a capacity of 8.2Mta, the cement producer is expanding its facilities with a second production line which will have a capacity of 4000tpd of cement. Operation is due to commence mid-2015.

The supplied Integrated Drive System will comprise low- and medium-voltage motors as well as the associated Sinamics and Sinamics Perfect Harmony drives including the required converter transformers, starters and compensation systems. The supply package contains 14 single-motor and multi-motor drives, 22 induction motors, one slip ring motor for the raw mill main drive and six gear units.

In 2012, Siemens already fitted out the cement factory in Tuban with the complete drive equipment for the first production line. Production commenced in October of last year. “By placing the follow-on contract with Siemens, we want to ensure professional project management and the smooth operation of our plant”, says Sidik Darusulistyo, plant manager at PT Holcim Indonesia Tbk.
