New order for Cementos Moctezuma – Mexico
On August 29, 2023, Cementos Moctezuma and Fives FCB signed a contract for the supply of one FCB Horomill® 3800 grinding mill and associated supervisory services for erection & commissioning.
With fourteen machines already installed in Mexico, Cementos Moctezuma S.A. de C.V. has renewed its confidence in Fives group and has selected the FCB Horomill® technology to increase the cement production capacity of its Tepetzingo plant, Morelos.
The collaboration between Fives and Cementos Moctezuma is a success story. During 29 years of collaboration, the company has already purchased 14 FCB Horomill® and played a fundamental role in the development of this unique Fives innovation.
From the outset, Cementos Moctezuma made the bold and visionary choice to opt for the most virtuous and frugal mill on the market, producing unrivalled cement quality with no need for water and the lowest power consumption on the market.
The existing 14 mills have been operating successfully since their commissioning and still provide the lowest electrical consumption in the market. These grinding mills installed on three Cementos Moctezuma sites have accumulated over 1,500,000 hours of operation to the end of 2022.
Furthermore, the mills cope with the latest cement quality requirements and new types of cement recipes to reduce carbon footprint of the plant.
The mills have also been subjected to various upgrades to further improve their operation, in liaison with Fives FCB Services department. This has been a key factor for this new order.
