The Loesche GmbH has sold six coal mills for grinding coal in a power plant in Belgium, which were first commissioned in 1984.
Due to economic reasons the power plant, which was operated by Electrabel Belgium, with their head office in Brussels, had been decommissioned in 2014. Fortunately, Loesche got the chance to repurchase at least four of these mills, type LM 20.2D and LM 19.2D.
As usual for power plants, the mills had always been kept in a perfect condition. Nevertheless, these mills will be completely refurbished and equipped with a new classifier customised for future technical specifications.
In the past years Loesche has always tried to get back the mills from power plants and find clients for these mills. As a reference list it can be summarized that in the last 6 years LOESCHE has refurbished and sold the following second hand mills: 4x LM 19.20D, 5x LM 17.20D, 3x LM 16/1180, 7x LM 14.20D, 2x LM 12.20D and 1x LM 9/670. All these mills are again in operation with different raw materials.
