Dubai-based mining, crushing and logistics operator Minerals Technocom Contractor FZE has recently installed and commissioned a Terex MPS 1200TPH plant in Ras Al Khaimah to support the production of steel-grade limestone for JSW Cement FZE.
JSW Cement FZE is a wholly-owned subsidiary of India-based JSW Cement. The produced limestone will be used as a by-product in its UAE plant and also as a raw material for their steel plant in India. This material will also cater to the requirements of local market.
Minerals Technocom turned to Terex, after being impressed by the professional approach and expertise provided by the Terex MPS team, to deliver a solution that would produce 6 million tons per annum. Following a consideration of options, they decided on a Terex 1200TPH plant consisting of a Primary Jaw Crusher—the Cedarapids JC5460 (the biggest jaw crusher offered by Terex), a Secondary Cone Crusher—Cedarapids MVP 550 X, a Tertiary Vertical Shaft Impactor—Canica 2000, with multiple screens in the process including the MTS 6204, Cedarapids TSV8203, a dual mechanism screen from the USA and torrent offerings from Malaysia. In all, the impressive set up spans approximately 4,20,000 sq.mts and produces 20,000 Metric ton per day ranging from 0-5mm, 5-10mm, 10-20mm, 20-40mm, 40-80mm.
With the support and supervision of the Terex MPS team members, the plant was commissioned earlier than the committed timeline. Sundar Rajan, Terex Sales Director – Middle East & East Africa explains, “We offered this plant to Minerals Technocom because of its relatively simple offering—with limited units delivering the best output and minimum fines generation. We were delighted to support the customer from the early planning stages right through to the supervision, erection and commissioning of this large-scale plant.”
The Head of Operations, JSW Cement adds, “Having a solution that satisfies our strict requirements in terms of consumption and productivity was of utmost importance to us and we are delighted that the Terex 1200TPH is producing the output as committed. In addition, Terex was a terrific support to us throughout our site planning, preliminary engineering layout, support to our Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor on layouts and planning for our site operations.”
Sundar Rajan continues, “We’re privileged to be part of this significant set up—it is a clear demonstration that we can provide specific solutions to achieve desired results, and just as importantly, the resources needed to back it up. We have no doubt this plant chosen by Minerals Technocom will continue achieving ultimate efficiency and production output and we look forward to supporting the ongoing relationship between Minerals Technocom and JSW Cement in the future.”
