Concrete Construction Infrastructure

McInnis Cement has selected ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions for a $150-million contract to manufacture and supply a full cement production line.

The new 6,000-mtpd clinker production plant is currently under construction on a green field site in the Port-Daniel-Gascons area of Quebec. The plant will be complete with a Polcid proprietary process control system to monitor and control all aspects of the facility and a Polad laboratory automation system to ensure product quality in every step of the process.

The main components of the plant will include: a 1,800-mtph quarry crushing plant, a raw material reclaim system consisting of a bridge reclaimer for limestone and four portal reclaimers for other additives or fuel, a Quadropol vertical roller mill for raw grinding, and a blending silo with a capacity of 10,000 mt for raw meal storage

A Polysius kiln line will consist of a five-stage, two-string Prepol As-Msc preheater, a 5.2 m x 75 m Polro rotary kiln and a Polytrack cooler with intermediate roll crusher. Cement grinding will take place in two Quadropol vertical roller mills with Sepol high-efficiency separators. The plant will also be equipped with three cement silos (with a capacity of 120,000 mt) as well as cement truck and ship loading facilities.


The plant is scheduled for commissioning in 2016, with full production starting later in that year.
