KHD further solidifies its leading position in the Turkish cement market

2018-04-03

YD Madencilik (Üstyapi Insaat Group) awarded Humboldt Wedag GmbH with the engineering and procurement of a new 5.000 tpd clinker production line near Yiglica, Düzce, in the Marmara region of Turkey. KHD is responsible for engineering and equipment supply, as well as the supervision of erection and commissioning. Moreover, KHD also provides its SIMULEX® plant simulation software to mirror the operation of the new plant.

The new clinker production line will consist of the following KHD core components:

  • Six-stage preheater with PYROCLON® LowNOX AF calciner, equipped with a PYROTOP® compact mixing chamber, tertiary air duct and the PYROBOX® calciner firing system
  • Three tire rotary kiln, with a diameter of 4,8m
  • PYRO-JET® kiln burner
  • PYROFLOOR® clinker cooler equipped with a PYROCRUSHER® system 

After commissioning, YD Madencilik’s plant will operate KHD’s most efficient six-stage preheater in Turkey. And thanks to lowest emission output of KHD’s proven LowNOX AF calciner, the environment in the Düzce region will remain unharmed.

The new line for YD Madencilik will be the 52nd kiln line from KHD in Turkey. KHD is the undisputed leader in the Turkish cement market with close to 70% of Turkish production units designed and installed by KHD.

Commissioning of the plant is scheduled for the third quarter of 2019.
