Akhangarancement JSC (part of the Eurocement Group Holding) installed a new generation gearbox on a rotary kiln. The equipment of the Czech company “WIKOV” was successfully put into operation. Modernization of the furnace will allow to increase equipment utilization and repair time.

In addition to replacing the gearbox, the rotary kiln underwent a planned overhaul, which touched the clinker conveyors, the sludge line, the refrigerator, the heat exchanger and other equipment. Total investments amounted to more than 1.5 million US dollars. Thanks to these measures, Akhangarancement will continue to produce high-quality products throughout the construction season and operate at maximum production capacity, which is 2 million tons of cement per year.

Installation of equipment of the Czech company produced under the supervision of the supplier ensures the reliability of the installation. The new gearbox is easy to maintain, has a compact size and a high level of security.

WIKOV has been a manufacturer of gears and mechanical gears for over 100 years. Experience and modern technologies make the company one of the leaders in its industry.

"Akhangarancement" regularly holds activities to improve operating efficiency. Since 2006, the plant has reduced fuel and electricity consumption by 20%, while labor productivity has increased 2.5 times. Modernization and modernization of the existing production goes along with the active construction of the new plant, which will begin production in 2020.
