Kenya’s Mombasa Cement has awarded Gebr Pfeiffer with a contract for an MVR 3750 C-4 mill for its second kiln line project, which is currently under construction at Vipingo, Kenya. The unit has a drive power of 2900kW and will be able to produce 150tph of OPC.

has an identical design to the new mill

Mombasa Cement already operates two cement mills from the Germany-based grinding specialist. In January 2016 the producer signed a contract for the same model of vertical mill for its Tororo plant in Uganda. Later that year, it also ordered a ready2grind modular grinding system with an MVR 1800 C-4 that was set up in Vipingo, Kenya, according to a press release.

The Indian branch of Gebr Pfeiffer and its headquarters in Kaiserslautern, Germany, will coordinate for the delivery of the unit. The design being identical to that of the mill in Uganda will provide an advantage for Mombasa Cement in terms of set-up, maintenance and the supply of spare parts.
