• AUMUND’s Chinese & Brazilian arms would be teaming up to work along with Sinoma Tianjin TDI for the fulfilment of the orders.
  • The company would be supplying a plethora of clinker conveying machinery to Loma Negra.

AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH (AUMUND), a German conveying technology products developer, has reportedly announced that AUMUND China & AUMUND Brazil have teamed-up to work with Sinoma Tianjin TDI to fulfil two orders for AUMUND Group of firms from South America.

Reports cite, AUMUND would be supplying three chain-bucket elevators, five pan conveyors, one drag chain conveyor and eight bucket elevators to help in the construction process of L’Amali Line 2, located in Loma Negra Companía Industrial.

According to an official press release, Loma Negra is Argentina’s leading cement producer and the order package would be rounded-off to about 19 silo discharge-gates which would be erected under the clinker silo in order to be able to feed the pan conveyors situated there.

Loma Negra had placed the order with the German company back in August 2017 to construct a second kiln line with a 5800 tpd capacity in Buenos Aires Provinces’ Olavarria, at the L’Amali Plant. The new line would be able to produce over 2.7 million tons of clinker on an annual basis. The new line would reportedly be located adjacent to the present kiln line with production scheduled to begin in early 2020.

In June, along with Sinoma and AUMUND Brazil, AUMUND Beijing was reportedly able to complete another project inside Argentina. This project was a supply contract for three pan conveyors, three chain-bucket elevators and four belt-bucket elevators through Sinoma to Argentina’s Cementos Avellaneda.

AUMUND’s Brazilian arm, historically, has had an extremely good working relationship with Argentina’s cement making oligopoly. The market in Argentina has reportedly has around four producers: Holcim Argentina, Petroquímica Comodoro Rivadavia, Cementos Avellaneda and Loma Negra. These firms own and operate 18 different manufacturing sites in total.

According to reports, financial terms of the supply agreement have not been unveiled yet.
