Bangladesh: Loesche to supply VRM for Haria 2 upgrade
01 February 2017

Loesche has announced that it has been chosen to supply a vertical roller mill and other equipment for the Aman Group’s Haria 2 grinding mill in Narayangonj, Bangladesh.

The equipment will be supplied as part of upgrade works being undertaken by China National Heavy Machinery Corporation which will raise the capacity of the plant from its current level of 10,000tpd.

Bangladesh has seen its level of cement consumption rise strongly in recent years and the government has been keen on encouraging domestic cement consumption. As the country lacks commercially developed limestone deposits, grinding mills such as Haria are key to this ambition.

Loesche are to supply a vertical roller mill of type LM 56.3+3 CS. The roller mill has a production capacity of 240tph Portland and composite cement clinker with a fineness of 3200 Blaine or 175tph GGBFS (ground-granulated blast-furnace slag) with a fineness of 4500Blaine, as well as a drive power of 5300kW. In addition to the mill, the scope of supply also includes additional technical equipment for the grinding plant such as a rotary feed, two-way chute, metal detector and permanent magnet drum separator.
