Commissioning Assignment, Chile

Two of our Process & Commissioning Senior Consultants have been assigned to assist CALCHILE in the commissioning of their new lime plant in Chile. Jagrut Upadhyay and Sergio Chaparro left for Chile mid-April to lead the commissioning work at the site. The plant is unique in that it is one of the very few installations in the world to use seashells as raw material for lime production with a suspension preheater. The plant has a production capacity of 500 mt/d of quicklime and is expected to go into production in May.
