FLSmidth to supply mill and packing plant in Egypt

09.11.2009
PRESS RELEASE 9 November 2009

FLSmidth has signed a contract worth approximately 21 million Euros (approximately DKK 156m) with the Egyptian cement producer Arabian Cement Company for supply of engineering and equipment for a 360 tonnes per hour cement mill and packing plant.
The equipment is to be installed next to the company's existing cement production plant located at Ramliya, near the city of Suez - a 6,000 tonnes per day facility supplied by FLSmidth on a turnkey basis in 2006-2008.
 
The contract comprises all major equipment such as two UMS cement mills and cement silos as well as three cement packing/dispatch plants.
 
A number of FLSmidth subsidiaries and divisions will participate in the project, providing dosing and weighing equipment, dedusting filters and cement packing systems. A complete electrical and control equipment package is also included in the contract.
 
The project will be implemented in parallel with FLSmidth's current supply of engineering and equipment for a complete second 6,000 tonnes per day cement production line at the plant, which was contracted in June 2008.
 
"This project confirms FLSmidth's good relations with Arabian Cement Company and FLSmidth's strong position on the Egyptian market which goes back more than a hundred years," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.
 
Commissioning of the equipment is scheduled to take place by the end of 2010.
