Duna Drava Cement (Heidelberg group) - Vac - Unghary

AN AVANTGUARD PLANT, CREATED, DESIGNED AND BUILT ENTIRELY AND INTERNALLY BY ENTSORGA, FOR DUNA DRAVA CEMENT, A FORWARD LOOKING CLIENT. THANKS TO THE USE OF AN ALTERNATIVE COMBUSTIBILE FUEL WHICH HAS A HIGH BIOGENIC CONTENT AND TO THIS PLANT WHICH IS HIGHLY  INTEGRATED AND HIGHLY AUTOMATED, THE CEMENT PLANT WILL MAKE SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS IN CO2 EMISSIONS, THUS RESPECTING THE MOST UP TO DATE REGULATIONS REGARDING ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY.

COMPANY

DDC is a joint venture owned by two Germany based company: the SCHWENK Zement KG and HeidelbergCement Group - both of them operate in building materials industry. The cement, concrete and aggregates business lines and the Beton Technológia Centrum Kft. employ more than 700 people.

THE PROJECT

Started at the beginning of 2019. thanks to adjudication of a tender put out by Duna Drava Cement LLC, Entsorga planned and constructed a completely automized plant for the moving and fuelling  with alternative combustibile fuel of an oven for the Hungarian cement manufacturer. The project  was successfully concluded in March, within the established time frame and in the middle of the maximum intensity of the COVID sanitary crisis that has struck our continent. Thanks to the replacement of part of the fossil fuel with renewable alternative fuel, the cement factory can save significant amounts of CO2 by limiting its emissions into the atmosphere and thus making its production processes more sustainable.

ENTSORGA SOLUTION

The plant uses two Entsorga proprietary technologies, the Automatic Crane Spider™and the Pelican™ system.

HOW THE INTEGRATED SYSTEM WORKS

The Automatic Crane Spider™ manage the fuel in a 24H warehouse, thanks to our propriety control system. The Pelican system™ is designed to receive the alternative fuel and directly feed it to the pre heater through a pneumatic line, with variable flow controlled according to process needs.
