Acting as a general contractor, Intercem supplied all the required engineering work, as well as all mechanical and electrical equipment on a turn-key basis. The project was completed successfully within the agreed timeframe. The customer was so satisfied with the results that it commissioned Intercem to supply a new raw mill, which was also planned, assembled and handed over on schedule – meeting all the customer’s expectations.
