Hydrated Lime Production Plant of Ahar
Client: National Iranian Copper Industries Co
Implementation Duration: Since 2010
This project has been defined to supply the hydrated lime needed for phases one and two of the Songun Copper Plant and consists of three main mining units, a kiln and a hydration plant. The technology used in this plant belongs to CimProgetti, an Italian company which is the largest company in the world of lime industry technology and uses the latest lime production technology, which in addition to ensuring the quality of the final product also complies with the latest European environmental standards. This technology consists of a Twin Shaft Regenerative (TSR) Kiln with a vertical shaft.
In parallel with negotiations with the technology owner to provide the key equipment of the factory, planning to localize about 75% of the equipment required by the plant and its production in the country and the adaptation of basic engineering in accordance with the certain conditions of site and project were carried out by ANIN Co. as a result of which employment rate increased and for in-house contractors a cost of over € 4 million was saved in the final cost of the plant.
This consultant uses scientific methods of project management in order to guide and plan the implementation stages and control the contractor’s activities, so that in spite of all the problems that arose during the project implementation period, such as a dramatic reduction in the national currency value, inflation, and lack of the required liquidity to run the project, the impossibility of having the technology owner around due to international sanctions and etc., we managed to continue the project operations in various sectors, as a result of which in just two years the physical progress of the project has been more than 82%. Currently, planning has been done to complete the remaining operations and launch the project in November of this year.
