THE PROJECT OF THE LEADING CEMENT PRODUCER IN THE URALS IS INCLUDED IN THE LIST OF PRIORITY INVESTMENT PROJECTS OF THE CHELYABINSK REGION
By the Decree of the Government of the Chelyabinsk Region of August 20, 2021 N 387-D reconstruction of the cement milling department of the SLK CEMENT enterprise is included in the list of priority investment projects. In the Korkino branch of SLK Cement LLC, the construction of a new mill is underway. The grinding capacity of the plant will be increased by 400 thousand tons, which will allow cement to be shipped to customers faster and produce a new, more environmentally friendly product, including in high season. The completion of major changes is scheduled for autumn 2022.
In January 2021, a large-scale project was launched at the SLK Cement plant in Korkino (Pervomaisky village) – the construction of a new mill produced by one of the world's leading manufacturers in this industry, Christian Pfeiffer. The height of the main building of the mill will be 30 meters, in the area of the elevator – 36 meters.
The work is carried out according to the schedule: the reject silo and separator, gas outlets, columns of the raw material warehouse are installed, the primary truss is welded in the clinker warehouse, preparations are underway for the installation of crane runway beams. A powerful mill filter has already been installed, as well as an aspiration filter for incoming spout, also a reject silo filter is being installed. The facility is provided with electricity; laboratory tests of the cable line from Pervomayskaya substation to substation No. 6 on the territory of the plant with a length of 1.3 km have already been completed. The installation of the frame of the mill building continues, metal structures of the street part of the clinker warehouse are being erected. Preparations are underway for the installation of raw material transportation lines. The process of applying a flame retardant coating to metal structures has been launched, which is extremely important for improving the safety of the facility.
"We installed the control cabinets of the mill operating system, completed the installation of the elevator well, started assembling the chain and buckets of the elevator. We began the installation of the metal structures of the gallery's No. 2 junction tower, which connects the junction tower and the mill building", said Alexey SCHMIDT, Chief engineer of the project. "At the moment, we can say that the construction of a new cement mill is approaching the half way mark".
During the implementation of the cement mill construction project (hereinafter CM) No. 204, eight bag filters will be installed at several facilities of the technological line: reject silo; spout aspiration from batchers CM No. 201; aspiration from new batchers for CM No. 204; the junction tower; silos No. 9 and 10; feeding spout aspiration CM No. 204, grits and finished cement return air slides, on the distribution bunker in front of the pneumatic chamber pump, PCP; aspiration of the mill, bucket elevator, air slides in the separator.
By the end of 2022, 5 new facilities will be erected: a milling building; gallery No. 1 with batching hoppers for feeding clinker, gypsum; a junction tower; a storage unit for a grinding intensifier - additives for grinding clinker; gallery No. 2 for feeding material into the receiving funnel of the mill.
Let us remind that the project started in 2019, when the equipment was purchased and transported to Korkino (Pervomaisky settlement). In September 2020, a positive conclusion of the state environmental expertise was received at the central office of Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources (Moscow), in January 2021 – a positive conclusion of the construction expertise of the project documentation in the Regional state autonomous institution "Gosexpertiza", Chelyabinsk. In February 2021, the main phase of construction began. All work is carried out on schedule, exactly on time. The mill is expected to be put into operation by the autumn of 2022.
