Sustainable cement production

Cost-efficient production and a simultaneous emissions reduction can only be achieved using components that are perfectly adapted to one another. As a long-term partner of the cement industry, we have all of the necessary business know-how and a perfectly matching portfolio to meet all your cement production requirements. For sustainable production and sustained success.

Currently being built for a planned capacity of 12,000 tons of clinker per day, the Cong Thanh Cement Plant is expected to be a major production facility in Asia – thanks to Siemens solutions.


Greater efficiency over the entire process chain

From the quarry to the kiln and from the clinker silo to the shipping facility: our automation solutions, energy-efficient drives and services cover the entire cement production process chain.

Clinker grinding

Successful cement production starts with the raw materials and the methods needed to process it. Vertical mills grind the raw powder to the correct fineness before it is subsequently burned in the rotary kiln to produce clinker. Our drive solutions improve the overall efficiency of this process. Automation solutions such as our CEMAT process control system, which is based on SIMATIC PC 7, offer maximum transparency throughout the grinding process. Find out more.

Rotary kilns used for clinker production must maintain a high level of operational stability and availability. In this process step, perfectly matched drive components and a reliable power supply are essential for achieving a consistently high clinker quality and preventing costly deformation damage to kilns. Discover how our solutions can keep your kilns operational.

Clinker grinding is a decisive, energy-intensive step in the cement production process. Vertical mills and tube mills that grind cement clinker at a maximum output of 30 MW (in multi-motor concepts) require reliable, efficient drive components. Our comprehensive drive solutions for cement mills from our SICEMENT portfolio ensure that your mills always deliver the required quality while operating with maximum efficiency.
