RHI AG massively extends production capacities in China and invests 13 million euros

* Plant extension in Dalian: third tunnel kiln with state-of-the-art heat management * Increased capacity for the cement, glass, nonferrous metals and steel markets* Improved delivery times and more flexible productionMiguel Cano, Head of Operations Industrial, fires the third tunnel kiln in Dalian.

RHI AG, the world market leader for refractory products, increases its production capacity in China by more than 20 percent to 270,000 tonnes. In late September, a third tunnel kiln was successfully commissioned at the Dalian plant. RHI invested roughly 13 million euros, thus continuing its growth strategy in the BRIC countries. “With this capacity extension we are strengthening our position in the cement, glass, nonferrous metals and steel segments. We are cutting delivery times and increasing flexibility in production,” Manfred Hödl, COO of the Industrial Division, explains.

At its plants in Dalian and Bayuquan, RHI produces fired basic bricks, basic mixes, isostatically pressed products as well as magnesia carbon bricks and prefab components. Both plants are supplied with raw materials from RHI’s Aoding site to a considerable extent.

Apart from the 156-meter-long tunnel kiln, the new plant in Dalian comprises crushers, mixers, two presses, packaging plants and warehouses. The tunnel kiln was completed two months ahead of schedule and is equipped with specially developed heat management. The entire plant was internally planned and built by an RHI team of some 100 people. Following a test phase in October, the first products will be delivered in November.
