FLSmidth to supply a complete cement plant in Tunisia


Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No. 17-2010, 21 May 2010

FLSmidth has signed a contract worth 107m Euros (DKK 797m) with Tunisian-owned Carthage Cement to supply equipment and services for a 5,800 tonnes per day state-of-the-art cement plant. The plant will be located approximately 40 km southwest of the Tunisian capital Tunis.

The scope of supply includes a full pyro processing line, ATOX and UMS mills, silos, a complete automated ECS installation (Expert Control and Supervision) as well as a packing plant. To achieve the best environmental performance the plant also features a QCX quality control system, gas analysing equipment and air pollution control filters.


The contract was signed in close cooperation with the Turkish building contractors EKON and PROKON who are responsible for all the construction work, buildings and structures as well as the installation of the equipment supplied by FLSmidth.


The cement plant, which will be technologically the most advanced in Tunisia, is designed for possible future use of alternative fuels.


"FLSmidth has a long history in Tunisia and other North African countries and we believe that the African cement market will continue to offer opportunities for growth. This project is therefore very important and will further strengthen our position in the region. The cement plant will be one of the largest in North Africa featuring the latest technology, the most energy efficient solutions and the highest environmental standards," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.


The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the plant is taken over by the customer in 2012.
