Quality Control Laboratory for New Cement Factory in Caracollo (Oruro) Bolivia
On April 2014, ECEBOL (Empresa Pública Productiva Cementos de Bolivia) has adjudicated with the main contract to the Spanish-German international consortium headed by Sacyr Industrial, IMASA and ThyssenKrupp (Polysius) with an investment of 244 million U.S. dollars (178 million euros).
The contract includes a greenfield project design, construction, installation and commissioning of a new Clinker line with a minimum capacity of 3,000 tons per day and a cement line to produce up to 1.3 million tons of Portland Type IP-30 cement, according to the Bolivian Standard.
S.A.E IBERTEST, a leading Spanish company in advanced material testing solutions and with high expertise in the cement sector, has been trusted by the international consortium for the supply, installation and commissioning of the laboratories for physical-chemical testing, offering the most advanced technologies for cement quality control. The delivery of all the equipment was carried out in 2017.
The scope of the project has also included the start-up and training of laboratory personnel, provided by our team of experts in August 2018, where the challenging geographical conditions of the site (altitude of 4,040 meters above sea level) and their influence on the correct functioning of the equipment was taken into account during all stages of the project, which has been a challenge.
With this project S.A.E. IBERTEST adds a new milestone to the many successful cases in the integral design of laboratories and turnkey execution for the cement sector.
