Nominee for Cement Project of the Year 2019 – Saudi White Cement

To help meet changing market demands, Saudi White Cement opted to modify and convert its existing grey kiln lines to produce both grey and white clinker. With the help of FLSmidth A/S, the resulting dual kiln line can switch easily between the two products, requiring only 5-7 days stoppage to complete any switch. The dual line is capable of producing 2000tpd white clinker, which is the highest white clinker capacity in the world. The design of the upgrade made excellent use of existing equipment in order to minimise investment cost.

The ICR Cement Industry Awards 2019 will be honoured at the forthcoming Cemtech Europe conference, taking place at the InterContinental Berlin, Germany, on 1-2 October 2019.
