thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, the thyssenkrupp Group's plant engineering specialist, has received an order from Al Sawfa Cement Company, Saudi Arabia, to build a complete cement production line. The order is worth around €100 million. The new 5,300 tpd cement clinker production plant will be constructed parallel to the existing line in Jabal Farasan, approximately 150 km north-east of Jeddah. Likewise supplied by thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, this cement production line has been in operation since 2009.

With our leading technology and strong service focus, we support cement producers worldwide with their efforts to further expand capacities and increase operating efficiency."

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions is supplying all components for the new cement line in Jabal Farasan, from the raw material preparation system, to the clinker manufacturing process, to the cement loading facility. Commissioning is planned for 2016.

The main components comprise: a crushing plant (1,700 tph), a storage facility for additives (with a storage capacity of 5 x 8,000 t), a blending bed, as well as a raw material grinding plant with ball mill and a POLYSIUS SEPOL separator (390 tph), and, for raw meal storage, a blending silo with a capacity of 15,000 t.
