Cim Ivoire starts up new plant
03 October 2018

Cim Metal-owned Cim Ivoire has started production at its Abidjan grinding plant in Côte d’Ivoire. The 8650tpd grinding unit, which features a vertical roller mill, is the largest plant in the country and is expected to provide the cement producer with long-term logistical benefits.

The project was carried out by Intercem Engineering, who also supplied the plant’s clinker and cement silos, packing plant and truck loading station. To transport the raw materials from the new Eco Hopper to the Cim Ivoire clinker silo and additive storage, troughed belt conveyors as well as all related components and the transfer tower  were also delivered in a separate project.

Going forward, the company plans to expand the Abidjan works to 4Mta.
