ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions and McInnis Cement have announced a sales/purchase agreement valued at CAD150m (US$132.6m) for the manufacturing and supply by ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (USA) Inc of a complete cement production line.

The new 6000tpd clinker production plant is currently under construction on a greenfield site in the Port-Daniel-Gascons area of Quebec, Canada.

The main components include: a 1800tph quarry crushing plant, a raw material reclaim system comprised of a bridge reclaimer for limestone and four portal reclaimers for other additives or fuel, a QUADROPOL vertical roller mill for raw grinding and a blending silo for raw meal storage, with a capacity of 10,000t. The Polysius kiln line will consist of a five-stage, two-string PREPOL AS-MSC preheater, a 5.2m (diameter) x 75m POLRO rotary kiln and a POLYTRACK cooler with intermediate roll crusher. Cement grinding will take place in two QUADROPOL vertical roller mills with SEPOL high-efficiency separators. The plant will be rounded off with three cement silos (with a capacity of 120,000t) as well as cement truck and ship loading facilities.

The new plant will be complete with a POLCID proprietary process control system to monitor and control all aspects of this new modern facility and a POLAB laboratory automation system.

McInnis Cement is a privately owned company with minority equity participation of Investment Quebec (Quebec government investment arm) created for the sole purpose of implementing a greenfield investment in a cement plant in the city of Port-Daniel-Gascons, in the province of Québec. The plant will have the capacity to produce 2.2Mta of cement and is scheduled for commissioning in 2016.
