AUMUND builds new 100,000 tonne silo in Limassol
Under the technical leadership of AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH, the Cypriot cement producer, Vassiliko Cement Works, is constructing an additional clinker silo with a capacity of around 100,000 tonnes over the next 18 months, at its works close to the coastal town of Limassol, Cyprus.
Vassiliko Cement has made considerable investments over the past 10 years, installing a cement grinding plant with a vertical mill, a kiln line with a capacity for 2 MT/y of clinker, and a clinker silo with a capacity of 100, 000 t. The plant was first established in 1963, and Vassiliko has been operating it since 2011 with a kiln capacity of 6,000 tpd. Approximately 50 per cent of the production is exported through its own port.
Under a semi-turnkey contract covering the construction of the additional clinker silo, complete with conveyor bridges, transfer towers, superstructures, loading silos and supports, AUMUND is responsible for the technical organisation and coordination of the project.
