LafargeHolcim and Fives successfully commissioned the cement line N°2 in Barroso plant, in Brazil

In order to fit the current needs of the cement Brazilian market, LafargeHolcim and Fives started up on May 18, 2016 the kiln N°2 of the Barroso plant, Minas Gerais State.

Fives cement barroso 2016-FIVES

This 4,500 tpd production line strongly reinforces the cement production capability of the plant, while combining high quality, flexibility and low emission.

To feed the kiln, Fives has also developed and started up the patented FCB Horomill® 4400 grinding mill, for the production of 420 tph of raw mix. This important success generates new and important perspectives to pursue the implementation of this fully automatic and energy-efficient technology.

The equipment delivered and commissioned by our teams in Barroso also includes several crushers (for limestone, coal, etc.), the coal mill workshop, dedusting systems, electrical distribution and automation equipment.

At the inauguration of the new line on May 24, 2016, LafargeHolcim and Fives expressed their satisfaction with the starting of the production in a safe and efficient way.
