Pakistani Kohat Cement Company has recently ordered as many as four vertical roller mills (VRM) from LOESCHE in order to expand their cement plant in Kohat, 160km west of the capital city of Islamabad.

The order comprises a four-roller raw material mill with a material throughput of 500t/h and two cement mills each with a grinding capacity of 210t/h of portland cement. The order is finally complemented by another vertical roller mill for grinding 50t/h of anthracite.

The concept of purchasing all mills from a single source has proven to be effective once again with this perfectly matched set of four mills for equipping a complete cement production line.

This is how LOESCHE was able to successfully come out on top of the competition with numerous customers in the cement sector. Last but not least, the lead time in this case is also only eight months.

Together with the positive experience with LOESCHE mills that are already reliably in use at Kohat Cement, this has not only won over the end customer: in fact the same applies for LOESCHE’s contract customers, planners and installers of the new plant, the Chinese company Sinoma International Engineering (NDI). LOESCHE has been successfully cooperating with the renowned contract partner specialised in the planning of cement plants for many years in numerous cement projects.

At its plant of the same name, Kohat Cement works with a current annual production capacity of around 2.8Mt of portland and white cement per year. With the newly constructed line, the daily capacity is now set to be expanded by 7,800t of portland cement.
