QATAR - Fives FCB is awarded a new Contract by QNCC for its fifth production line.

Qatar National Cement Co. has selected after international tender the French company Fives FCB for the implementation on a turnkey basis of its 5th production line of a 5’000 tons/day clinker capacity. This new project is set to cover the huge cement demand sustained by the numerous infrastructure projects planned in the State of Qatar, the 2022 World Cup being probably the most famous, but not the only one.

This new production line covers the whole equipment from the raw material preparation to the cement dispatch, including the already well proven Fives process equipment: a raw grinding FCB B-mill of 6400 kW and its associated FCB TSV™ 7500 Classifier, a 5-stage single string FCB Preheater and its precalciner FCB Zero-NOx Preca, a 4.8 x 76 m three-pier FCB Kiln, two TGT® process filters, and two cement FCB B-mills of 4200 KW and their associated FCB TSV® 4000 Classifiers.

The execution of the plant on EPC basis will be done in 3 steps, starting with the first cement mill production in 17 months, and then of the second grinding plant within 19 months. The last phase will be the firing of the kiln and the production of clinker within 27 months. The Belgian company TPF-Basse Sambre s.a. has been appointed by QNCC as the Consultant Engineer for the project.

Fives FCB, which is part of the Cement | Minerals business line of Fives, has already successfully implemented on turnkey basis the previous QNCC’s lines n° 2, 3 and 4, totalizing a capacity of 11’000 tons/day of clinker.
