The new cement grinding unit for Cahya Mata Sarawak (CMS) is the first turnkey cement grinding plant in Malaysia supplied by Christian Pfeiffer of Beckum, Germany. The EPC contract for the unit was signed in May 2014 in line with FIDIC regulations. The project includes raw material handling and finish product storage silos as well as a fully-automated packing plant (see Figure 1). 

Located next to an existing rotary kiln line in Mambong, Kuching, the new plant meets CMS’ requirement to increase its cement production with a reliable and energy-efficient grinding plant that is capable of delivering various cement types in bulk, big-bags and 50kg bags, in loose or palletised form, with or without pallets.
