On 8 April 2019, the foundation stone was laid for the new cement grinding plant “Les Cimenteries de la Basse Guinée” in Kamsar, Guinea. The ceremony was celebrated in the presence of high-ranking members of the government, leading personalities of the client and the managing director of Intercem, Olaf Michelswirth, with two of his employees and the active participation of the population.
For many years Intercem has been commissioned with the maintenance work in the course of the winter revision in the cement works of a well-known German concern. This shows that Intercem has proven to be a reliable partner in the quality of its work.
Following the successfully finished projects in Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso, Intercem has been granted a new order in West Africa from “Les Cimenteries de la Basse-Guinée” for a 500.000 tpa cement grinding plant including raw material shed, hopper station, packing plant and truck loading station in Kamsar, Guinea.
In a German cement plant the secondary fuel dosing system had to be optimized and Intercem was commissioned to do so. The scope of delivery includes the following items: Disassembly on site, refurbishment of the trough chain conveyors still to be used, construction of a new bunker and installation of the refurbished screws
The cement plant Lübeck has appointed Intercem to supply a silo unit consisting of 4 steel silos with a capacity of 1,200 m3 each. In addition, the bulk loading and the complex cement conveying via air slides and bucket elevators leading over the complete area of the plant are part of the scope of supply.
Intercem has been awarded the contract to supply a high-efficiency separator ICS 143, as well as the associated plant aggregates for a new cement plant in Russia. The high-efficiency separator, an in-house development manufactured in the company workshop, has a capacity of 115 t / h at 3,000 cm2/g acc.
Intercem has received an order for the optimization of the raw meal dosing from a renowned German cement plant.Currently the raw meal dosing of a kiln is situated in front of the bucket elevator of the heat exchanger building. After the bucket elevator, the material flow is divided volumetrically by an air chute system to both of the heat exchanger pipes. The sealing to the exchanger is realized by two rotary valves.
The cement plant is designed for all departments of the cement plants: Crushing of raw materials; Raw material storage and homogenisation; Raw mix control; Raw mix material grinding and kiln dedusting; Raw mix material storage and pre-blending; Clinker burning and storage; Cement grinding; Cement storage; Cement packing & truck loading; Coal grinding plant
The order Intercem received from Sea Invest at the end of 2016 which included the supply of troughed belt conveyors and all associated components and the EPC-based transfer tower – from piling, foundation work, steel construction, cladding of the building, roofing of the belt bridges, the necessary filters and chutes to the electrical equipment, installation and commissioning – has now been handed over without delay as contractually agreed.
Intercem will supply a closed circuit ball mill with vertical high efficiency air separator, mill type two compartment ball mill, Ø 3.20 m x 10.00 m EGL. The first compartment is equipped with lifting liners to assure powerful impact for coarse grinding. The second compartment is equipped with a 3-step classifying liner system to assure ball sorting with high fine grinding action.
In connection with the 3 big orders Intercem has been granted with by Cim Metal Group in West Africa, Cimfaso in Ouagadougou, Cim Ivoire in Abidjan and Cimasso in Bobo Dioulasso, a further step has been taken. Each of the 3 cement grinding plants will also have a train loading respectively unloading station, planned, engineered and supervised by Intercem. The first train unloading station was finished in August 2017 in the Cimfaso plant in Ouagadougou.
At the beginning of 2015, the cement grinding plant Cimfaso in Ouagadougou was commissioned with a grinding capacity of 135t/h and has been performing trouble-free since then. Intercem received a further order for a 6.500 t/d cement grinding plant in Bobo-Dioulasso, which will be the largest cement grinding plant in Burkina Faso. Further construction permits will not be granted.
