Fives FCB started work on the order made by Saudi White Cement Co. for the revamping and the increasing of capacity from 700 to 1,000 tpd of its  white cement production line no.1 on the Muzahmiyah site, located at 75 kilometres from Riyadh, in Saudi Arabia.

This contract concerned the addition of kaolin and gypsum crushing plant, the increasing of capacity of the raw and cement grinding plants, which will each be equipped with a ball mill alongside the existing grinding mills, as well as a TSVTM classifier.

It also included the modification of the preheater tower including a new precalciner, the replacement of the downstream seal of the kiln, the modification of the clinker cooler as well as the installation of a 10,000 tonne silo for cement storage.

The deadline for carrying out modifications on the existing equipment will be very short as the shutdown period, starting in March 2012, will not exceed three months.
