FLSmidth receives operation and maintenance contract in Tunisia

21.05.2010

Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No. 18-2010, 21 May 2010

FLSmidth has been awarded a contract from Tunisian owned Carthage Cement for operation and maintenance of their new cement plant to be constructed approximately 40 km southwest of the Tunisian capital Tunis.

 

The cement plant is being designed and supplied by FLSmidth and cooperation with the Turkish contracting companies EKON and PROKON (see Company Announcement no. 17-2010).  

 

The scope of the supply includes complete staffing of the plant for operation and maintenance of the equipment, training of the staff as well as sourcing and inventory control of spare parts and lubricants.

 

The objective of the operation and maintenance contract is to ensure a high production level of the plant as well as ensuring an ongoing knowledge transfer and training of the local staff.

 

The value of the operation and maintenance contract will over a period of five years amount to more than 65m Euros (DKK 500m) for FLSmidth.

 

"This is the sixth, large cement operation and maintenance contract awarded to FLSmidth and it clearly demonstrates how well our operation and maintenance services and One Source offering are received by the customers. The operation and maintenance activities reduce our sensitivity to cyclical developments in the sale of cement and minerals plants and provide us with valuable operational experience," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.   

 

The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until 2017.
