Fives: offering innovative and pioneering solutions

07 October 2015

Within Fives, the Cement / Minerals business line specialises in the design, supply and installation of core process equipment as well as complete plants. The Group’s expertise includes technologies in crushing, grinding, pyro-processing, combustion and gas treatment, as well as in turnkey project management and customer services.

In 2014, this expertise was recognised once again by E.C.D.E. in Algeria and by Qatar National Cement Co. with the signature of two new contracts for turnkey projects:

  • In March, E.C.D.E. implemented the contract relating to the third production line of the Chlef cement plant, including the execution of a new 6,000-tpd clinker production line, scheduled to be operating by the end of 2016.
  • After successful cooperation for the supply of three lines at the Umm Bab site, Qatar National Cement Co. again selected Fives for the implementation of its fifth 5,000-tpd-capacity clinker production line.

Fives is also recognised in the cement and mineral markets as a provider of pioneering and innovative solutions with the highest levels of performance, product quality, energy efficiency and emission controls.

The Group offers a wide product portfolio using inventive proprietary technologies, such as the FCB Rhodax® crusher, the FCB Horomill® grinding mill, the Pillard NovaFlam® and PrecaFlam™ burners and the Fives TGT® and Sonair™ process filters.

For example, in April 2015, Lafarge started its new cement grinding plant supplied by Fives, in Teresa (Philippines). This grinding plant is fitted with an FCB Horomill® 3800 designed by Fives to reduce the electrical consumption of the cement plants and delivering optimal performance regarding cement quality and power consumption. The plant is able to increase the cement production by 850,000 tpy in a sustainable way.

This is in line with Lafarge’s initiatives to be environmentally-friendly as the FCB Horomill® can use carbon-neutral additives and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 94,000 tons annually.

This installation also includes a FCB TSV™ Classifier, a TGT® Filter designed by Fives and a Pillard HeatGen (hot gas generator).

From the initial project definition to the plant commissioning, Fives provides tailor-made solutions, maximised performance, on-time delivery and within-budget execution.

Fives also offers plant site services to support customers in achieving the highest levels of production line availability, maximising efficiency and maintaining plant performance throughout its lifecycle.

With 80 years of experience in industrial engineering and contract execution, Fives Cement / Minerals’ dedicated teams – 500 strong in France, Spain, Germany, Canada, the USA, Mexico, India, Brazil, China and Russia – have proven operational excellence in dealing with major projects worldwide.

Fives is a reliable and enterprising partner for solutions that deliver the ultimate performance.
