Trakya case

Case story: Cimentas-Trakya plant

Cimentas, one of Turkey’s leading cement producers, wanted to increase the 1,700 tpd nominal capacity of the Trakya plant for the best possible upgrade with the shortest payback time. The project team devised a way to build a new preheater tower beside the existing one, so that building a connection between the new tower and the kiln inlet and changing the complete cooler were the only tasks requiring downtime. The partnership approach between Cimentas and FLSmidth throughout the project proved its value in the results. The erection process was fast and furious, and kiln stoppage was minimised at a record-breaking 54 days.
