LLC "Sengileevsky Cement Plant": history, production, reviews
LLC "Sengileevsky Cement Plant" - a largea modern enterprise for the production of stable materials with a capacity of more than 2.36 million tons. It is located in Sengilee, Ulyanovsk region. It is a structural part of the holding company Eurocement. Production of the enterprise is typical for domestic factories. This cement is popular brands CEM IV / A 32.5N and CEM I 42.5B.
In the summer of 2015, newhigh-tech enterprise on the bank of the river. The Volga, located 42 kilometers south of Ulyanovsk. For the first time the renewed Sengileevsky cement plant, commissioned in 1915, met the new century as the flagship of the construction industry of the Ulyanovsk region.
His work is based on uniquedeposits of limestone, characterized by a denser than usual concentration of petrified organisms in Cretaceous sediments. Tectonic uplifts in this region pushed to the surface of the richest deposits of light raw materials. Reserves of the deposit, developed since the beginning of the XX century, have already been depleted. However, a project has been prepared for the development of new deposits of chalk.
100 years of history
Sengileevsky Cement Plant marked the centuryanniversary. However, the history of the company was not easy. After the economic stagnation caused by the defeat of the Japanese and the revolutionary unrest in 1905, Russian industry was gaining momentum. Especially acute was the lack of cement. Merchants Simbirsk province in 1912 decided about the rich Cretaceous deposits Sengileevskogo field to build a plant of building materials and "to break a big jackpot."
However, the construction was slipping. First, they dismissed the appointed leader for embezzlement and improper conduct of business. Later, unexpectedly for all, World War I began, and suppliers of equipment from Switzerland and Germany severed contracts.
Despite numerous troubles, the discoveryThe plant was still held on 1.05.1915. The basis of production was two large furnaces with a capacity of 50,400 tons. In a year the enterprise issued up to 300 000 barrels of Portland cement. Laboratory studies of the Institute of Railways confirmed that the products did not just meet the standards, but significantly exceeded them.
The revolutionary events did not bypass Sengileevskycement plant side. He worked only until May 1921. Under the decision of Tsemtrest the enterprise began to be dismantled with the purpose of its closing. The power substation and equipment from key plant assemblies were transferred to other factories: mills, ovens, water pumping stations. Local authorities did not approve of such actions and for years kept up with the thresholds of higher authorities, until in 1927 a decision was issued to restore production. In 1931 the workshops were launched at full capacity.
Grandiose people's buildings, unfolded in30-ies, required an unprecedented amount of concrete, and, accordingly, cement. The government decided to increase the capacity of the plant from 50,000 to 86,000 tons. A large amount of 2 million rubles was allocated for the modernization and expansion of production. However, it was not possible to achieve the targets. The plan was failed, and the leadership was repressed in 1937.
Only in 1954 the following modernization of the Sengileevsky plant was carried out. Most laborious processes were mechanized. The enterprise has become an important link in the Volga region's industry.
In a market environment
In 1992 for the Sengileevsky cement planthard times came again. The soaring prices for cement products led to the stocking of warehouses and the actual cessation of production. Employees were not paid wages for months. The enterprise fevered for the next 15 years.
In 2007, the plant decided to restructure. The old production equipment was completely dismantled. In the vacated areas in 2009, installation of modern energy-efficient production lines for the production of portland cement of various grades by the dry method began.
After the entry of the Sengileevsky Cement Plantin the structure of the holding company "Eurocement" its production capabilities have increased. The investments made allowed to finish the construction work, to complete the workshops with energy-intensive equipment from the German concern KHD Humboldt Wedag. The capacity of the company today allows producing 2.36 million tons of cement per year.
The most effectivethe moment of the technology of manufacturing construction materials. The new principles of the Sengileevsky Cement Plant have reduced the cost of electricity and gas by half, and labor productivity, on the contrary, is increased 4-fold. The enterprise acquired its own power plant of a gas-turbine type with a capacity of 26 MW produced by Siemens. It allows you to generate electricity and heat energy.
Modern equipment has helped not onlyincrease productivity and reduce costs. The plant is an example of sustainable production, as far as possible in this industry. Emissions of harmful substances are 2.5 times less than the approved normative indicators.
Sengileevsky Cement Plant: Feedback
Given that the company is completely new(despite a hundred-year history), equipped with a unique equipment for Russia, the output produces products of the highest quality. It meets the requirements of GOST 31108-2016 and European standards. Let out cement ЦЕМ IV / A 32,5Н and ЦЕМ I 42,5Б possess stable qualitative characteristics.
Consumers note excellent stackability andmobility of the concrete mixture obtained from the raw material. There is no false setting effect. Cement mixes well with other components in concrete mixers, perfectly grips with concrete structures, brick, gas silicate, expanded clay blocks and other building materials.
