Aumund will supply three chain bucket elevators, eight belt bucket elevators, five pan conveyors, and a drag chain conveyor for the construction of L’Amali Line 2 at Loma Negra Companía Industrial, the leading cement producer in Argentina.
The order package will be rounded off with 19 silo discharge gates that will be installed under the clinker silo to feed the pan conveyors located there.
Established in 1926, Loma Negra awarded Aumund the order in August 2017 to build a second kiln line with a capacity of 5800 tpd at the L’Amali Plant in Olavarria in Buenos Aires Province. The new line, which will produce 2.7 million tons of clinker per year, will be located adjacent to the existing kiln line. Production will start early in 2020.
In June, Aumund Beijing was able to conclude another successful project in Argentina, together with Aumund Brazil and Sinoma, to supply four belt bucket elevators, three chain bucket elevators, and three pan conveyors via Sinoma TDI to Cementos Avellaneda. Cementos Avellaneda belongs to the Brasilian Votorantim Group and Spanish Molins.
Traditionally Aumund Brazil has had good working relationships in the oligopoly of cement production in Argentina, where the market is shared between four producers, Loma Negra, Holcim Argentina, Cementos Avellaneda, and Petroquímica Comodoro Rivadavia, with 18 manufacturing locations between them.
