Kyzulkumzement in Uzbekistan awarded Schade, part of the Aumund Group, the contract to supply two bridge-type reclaimers and a stacker to its plant.
The two reclaimers, each with a capacity of 1000tph and a rail span of 30m and the 1200tph stacker will be delivered in the autumn of 2017 so that the plant can be commissioned in early 2018. The project is being realised with the aid of World Bank financing.
The order, which is realised with finance from the World Bank, is part of the modernisation and improvement of cement plants that was called for two years ago by the Uzbek construction materials collective, Uzstroymateriali. This investment programme comprises nine projects for modernisation and reconstruction of plant at three of the largest cement works in the country, Kyzylkumzement in Nawoi, Akhangaranzement, and Bekabadzement in the Tashkent region. The investment volume at Kyzylkumzement alone is in the order of US$40m. Currently there are six cement plants in Uzbekistan with a total installed capacity of around 8Mta.
