FLSmidth to build Algeria's first white cement plant

22.08.2005
Message to the Copenhagen Stock Exchange, No. 22 - 2005, 22 August 2005

FLSmidth has signed a DKK 829m contract (equivalent to EUR 111m) with Ciment Blanc Algerien (CIBA) to supply a greenfield white cement plant with a capacity of 1500 tonnes per day.
The cement plant is to be built in the northwestern part of Algeria near the ports of Oran and Mostaganem and is expected to be commissioned by mid 2007.
 
FLSmidth is to supply all the machinery and auxiliary equipment, and several FLSmidth subsidiaries and divisions are participating as subcontractors to the project. FLSmidth's supplies will consist of a crusher, a complete ILC 3-support kiln with preheater and rotary cooler plus a cement grinding plant. The contract also includes civil engineering in addition to raw material stores, silos, electrostatic precipitators, a complete quality and process control system and two complete Ventomatic packing lines.
 
FLSmidth will be constructing the plant in cooperation with Orascom Construction Industries (OCI), an Egyptian-based international building contractor with whom FLSmidth has already successfully undertaken similar projects in Algeria and Libya.
 
The new plant will be Algeria's first white cement facility with a capacity more than sufficient to cover the nation's consumption of white cement which is currently around 260,000 tonnes per year.
 
The white cement plant will be one of few in North Africa because the construction of such a facility places great demands on raw materials, machinery and equipment in order to attain the desirable whiteness of the cement during production. FLSmidth has built several other similar plants around the world and has a considerable know-how in this field.
 
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the commissioning in 2007.
