09/01/2015

The modern cement plant Ferzikovo, in Kaluga region in Russia, has a production capacity of 5,000 tons of cement clinkers per day. The new plant, built on a compact area of approximately 430.000 m², was completed in July 2015. Lafarge has been active in Russia since 1996, developing two lines: cement and non-metallic materials as well as concrete. Since July, 15, 2015 Lafarge is a part of LafargeHolcim Group.

The new Ferzikovo cement plant is a dry-line cement plant, which means 2.5 times less energy consumption than with a conventional production technology. Raw material transportation from the bank to the plant is provided through closed belt conveyor of 5,500 m length over Oka river. There are 88 high technology industrial facilities on the territory. All production lines are automated. An alternative fuel section will provide partial substitution of natural gas for alternative energy sources. The plant meets the requirements of the cement growing construction market in Moscow and neighbouring areas.

Tebodin’s project team executed the basic design, tender package, and adaption of detailed design for the construction phase, technical client services, construction and author supervision. About 50 employees from Moscow, Rostov-on-Don, Ekaterinburg, Kiev, and Lviv offices were involved into the project.
