Raysut Cement Co (RCC) has signed an agreement with Oman-based Ayoki Engineering LLC for the upgrade of the Line 3 clinker cooler at its Salalah plant. According to a media statement from Raysut, Ayoki Engineering will import all the equipment for the clinker cooler upgrade from IKN GmbH, Germany.

"The upgrade of clinker cooler is in line with Raysut's strategic plan to install the latest in production technology to reduce costs as well as to scale up its plants with state-of-the-art equipment," said Joey Ghose, Group CEO of Oman-headquartered RCC.

Under the agreement with Ayoki, the existing grate cooler will be replaced by IKN Pendulum clinker cooler designed for a capacity of 4000tpd with a guaranteed 3500tpd clinker production.

The project scope includes civil works, supply and installation works of mechanical and electrical works related to the clinker cooler upgrade. Sourcing and installation of the refractory will also be under the responsibility of an EPC contractor through IKN. The installation is scheduled to be completed in 4Q19.
