Conveyor Solutions at Gotland

November 20, 2017

Apeco successfully completed the conveyor system project at the Cementa cement plant in Slite, Gotland. Within the framework of the project, we delivered two belt conveyors with different transhipment chutes and flap-valves to our client. We also carried out a comprehensive rebuilding of the transhipment building. The supplied conveyors are capable of transporting sand or slag with a productivity of 600 tons per hour. The specific feature of the project is the fact that the Duroxite abrasion resistant steel, which is specially manufactured by SSAB, was used as the base material for the chutes. It is also worth noting that the equipment was designed and installed on the hill with limited bearing points.

The equipment supplied is part of the Cementa project, which aims to significantly reduce CO2 emissions from cement production by introducing new materials.

Cementa develops, manufactures and markets cement products that contribute to improving the productivity and profitability of its customers. Cementa has more than 125 years of experience in the cement industry.

Cementa is part of the HeidelbergCement Group, the world’s third largest producer of cement and building material with operations and activities across Northern, Eastern and Western Europe, North America, Africa and Asia.
