Modernization at Vác Plant
Duna-Dráva Cement Kft. launched an almost HUF 7 billion new environmental investment in 2016 with a purpose of reducing dust emission to the minimal level at Vác Plant. The modernization contributes to the growth of operational safety, helps sustainable cement production, and ensures that our company stays a reliable and stable employer in the area for the next decades.
The technical development started in the summer of 2016 and it lasted until April 2018. With the use of the more modern technological solutions we took another step towards sustainability. The first part of the project was finished in early March 2017. The phase included the replacement of two cyclone heat exchangers and the fuel gas conduit as well, in addition to the partial modernization of the clinker cooler. In April the foundation works of the new calciner tower were finished, while at the same time the bypass and the 32 meter-high silo were also built.
