The Egyptian government has signed a contract with Chengdu Design & Research Institute of Building Materials Industry, part of Sinoma International Engineering, to build six clinker production lines with a capacity of 6000tpd each in Beni Suef, Egypt.
Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH, in close cooperation with its Chinese subsidiary Aumund Beijing, has won the order to supply the clinker conveying equipment for the project.
The identical lines will each be equipped with four BWG belt bucket elevators, with capacities up to 650tph and three BWZ chain bucket elevators (up to 550tph).
The equipment package also includes four BWG-L belt bucket elevators (170tph) one BWZ-L chain bucket elevator (80tph) as well as six pan conveyors (375tph), for each of the six lines.
The new greenfield project in Beni Suef is to be fully completed within the next three years. The pilot phase of the new production lines is due to start as early as December 2017.
Aumund Fördertechnik will supply these 108 machines to Egypt in three deliveries, between April and June 2017.
