QATAR – Fives to commission cement grinding plant in QNCC 5th production line

On January, 25 and February, 6, 2017, Fives commissioned two new cement milling units for Qatar National Cement Co., as part of the construction of its 5th production line in Umm Bab, Qatar. This turnkey project, which is still under construction, comprises a 5,000 tpd plant fitted with FCB technologies.

By providing its long-term customer with this additional grinding capacity, Fives supports the growing cement demand in Qatar, boosted by ongoing infrastructure projects related to FIFA World Cup 2022 preparations.

This new production line covers the whole set of equipment, from raw material preparation up to the cement dispatch, specifically:

  • one 6400 kW FCB B‑mill with its FCB TSV 7500 Classifier for the raw meal grinding plant,
  • one 5-stage FCB Preheater +  FCB Zero-NOx Preca, along with a FCB Kiln for the burning line,
  • two TGT® process filters,
  • two 4200 KW FCB B‑mills with their FCB TSV 4000 Classifiers for the cement grinding plant.
