New Cement Plant Near Yekaterinburg Receives 170m Rotary Kiln

A 170-meter rotary kiln set up at the construction site of Astomstroykompleks’ new cement plant. Supervised installation was carried out by the main contractor and contractor — Volgocemmash. The company is the largest Russian manufacturer of equipment for the cement industry and is responsible for delivery in parts, and on-site assembly.

From H2 2018 to H1 2019 Volgocemmash plant was busy with mostly manufacturing production line for Atomstroykompleks. The kiln is 4.5m in diameter and 170m in length. A rotary kiln will process clinker for regular and white cement.

Given the size and number of components of the kiln, its delivery was split in stages over several weeks. In order for vehicles carrying oversized cargo to enter the construction site, the gates had to be disassembled.

This contract is one of the largest for Volgocemmash in recent years. Full cycle projects like this one were more typical for government contracts during the Soviet era.

Along with the installation of the remaining equipment, a clinker cooler is in now the works and a primary dust filter is set up. This new cement plant — ‘ASK-cement’ - is up for commissioning in the summer of 2020.

Atomstroykompleks is the largest developer of the Urals region. The company owns 12 building and finishing materials factories, a design institute and multiple construction divisions. In order to bring the construction of the new cement plant to fruition, Atomstroykompleks took a loan of 1 billion rubles with a preferential interest rate of 8.5% per annum from VTB bank.
