SCHADE Lagertechnik secures orders in Uzbekistan and Jamaica
In July SCHADE, an AUMUND Group company, won the order to supply two bridge type reclaimers and a stacker to Kyzylkumzement in Uzbekistan by its technical solution, which was preferred by the customer over those of its five cement industry competitors. The two reclaimers, each with a capacity of 1,000 t/h and a rail span of 30 m and the 1,200 t/h stacker will be delivered in the autumn of 2017 so that the plant can be commissioned in early 2018. The project is being realised with the aid of World Bank financing.
The order is part of the modernisation and improvement of cement plants that was called for two years ago by the Uzbek construction materials collective, Uzstroymateriali. This investment programme comprises nine projects for modernisation and reconstruction of plant at three of the largest cement works in the country, Kyzylkumzement in Nawoi and Akhangaranzement, and Bekabadzement in the Tashkent region. The investment volume at Kyzylkumzement alone is in the order of US$ 40 million. Currently there are six cement plants in Uzbekistan with a total installed capacity of around eight million tonnes.
Full-portal reclaimer for Caribbean Cement
SCHADE will also supply in autumn 2017 a full-portal reclaimer for limestone, with a capacity of 700 t/h and a rail span of 42 m, to Caribbean Cement, the only producer of Portland cement in Jamaica.
Caribbean Cement Company Ltd., or Carib Cement, located in Rockfort, near the capital city of Kingston, has been producing cement using 100% Jamaican raw materials since 1952, and has a cement manufacturing capacity of two million tonnes per annum.
The project phase leading up to this order had been going on for almost 20 years. Rather than investing in a new machine the initial plan was to convert an existing one. In the end the management decided that the purchase of a new machine would be more economical than incorporating all the required modifications into the existing machine.
