Guinée Industries Ciments (GIC) awarded KHD Humboldt Wedag a new contract to upgrade its cement grinding plant located in the capital city Conakry, Guinea. GIC will integrate a COMFLEX® system into their existing ball mills. The system will mark the third COMFLEX system with roller press technology in West Africa.

With the latest COMFLEX system, GIC will increase the capacity of its cement grinding line by more than 100 per cent and save over 20 per cent in operational energy costs per tonne, KHD said in a statement.

KHD’s scope includes the engineering and delivery of mechanical and electrical equipment, as well as the supervision of erection and commissioning for the new COMFLEX SC16-3500. The core equipment includes:
• roller press RPS 16-170/180 with ROLCOX® system for control and monitoring
• cascade separator, type VS 620 as a static classifier
• high efficiency separator SEPMASTER, type SKS-VC 3500 as a dynamic classifier
• system fan HKSK 212-275.

The commissioning of the new COMFLEX system is planned for the end of 2017.
