ABB to supply Semen Bosowa Maros

ABB has won an order from Tianjin Cement Industry Design & Research Institute Co Ltd,  a subsidiary of the Sinoma Group (China), for its variable-speed drive solution for a dual-pinion ball mill at the PT Semen Bosowa Maros cement plant in Indonesia.

ABB was selected for that project because the end customer is satisfied with earlier deliveries for the first cement grinding line at the plant, including a gearless mill drive (GMD) and a vertical mill with ABB slip ring motors, the power and automation technology group said in a statement yesterday.

Rachid Hamdani, project director of PT Semen Bosowa Maros, also commented: “ABB’s solution was favoured for several reasons, not least because of the high-level of efficiency offered by the permanent magnet motors used and the absence of a gearbox in the system, which maximises availability and reliability."

The equipment will be delivered in March 2016 and commissioned in the third quarter of 2016.
