Christian Pfeiffer confirmed it has received the order to erect a turnkey cement grinding plant including silos and packing facility for Caha Mata Sarawak (CMS), in Kuching, Malaysia.

The related contract was signed on 23 June 2014. The order, at a total amount of about EUR36m comprises engineering, fabrication, and supply of the entire equipment including electrical and control equipment, installation and commissioning of the grinding plant as well as the complete construction work and layout of roads.

The grinding plant is designed for a capacity of 150tph (1Mta) for OPC with 3500cm2/g according to Blaine. Delivery includes a two-chamber ball mill with slide shoe bearing (4.8m x 15m), equipped with a wear-resistant shell liner made of progressive lifters for the first grinding chamber, the latest fourth-generation intermediate diaphragm with optimised centre, a classifying lining in the second chamber and  QDK 248Z separator with filter system.

Completing the delivery are two 10,000t silos with a total of four bulk loads for trucks, two big bag loading stations, and a packing and palletising installation for truck loading with a capacity of 3000 bags/hr.  One of the two silos is equipped with a one-chamber system and the other with a two-chamber system. The specific energy demand of the entire grinding plant per ton of OPC is less than 40kW/t.

The construction works in Malaysia will start in July 2014. Completion and commissioning are scheduled for late summer next year.
