FLSmidth wins order for slag cement grinding plant in Brazil

21.03.2006
Message to the Copenhagen Stock Exchange, No. 08 - 2006, 21 March 2006

FLSmidth has signed a contract for the first major cement project in Brazil after several years of low market activity.
The contract signed with CSN-Cimentos covers design and supply of equipment for a slag cement grinding plant. The 2.2 million tonnes per year facility will be built in the Rio de Janeiro state in Brazil.
 
The plant is expected to come on stream in the second half of 2007. The scope of the contract includes two OK 39-4 vertical mills which will be the largest vertical cement mills ever designed by FLSmidth, each with a capacity of 171 tonnes per hour.
 
Several FLSmidth subsidiaries and divisions are contributing know-how and equipment to the project.
 
This is the first time FLSmidth is to supply equipment and technology to CSN-Cimentos SA, a newcomer to the Brazilian cement industry and a subsidiary of the steel works Companhia Siderurgica National, which may provide the slag for the production of cement.
 
The order awarded to FLSmidth confirms the company's traditionally strong position in the Brazilian market which is showing signs of positive development after a period of little investment in new production capacity. The order also marks the market acceptance of the cost-efficient OK vertical mill grinding technology
 
"It is agreed with the customer not to disclose the value of the contract which will contribute positively to FLSmidth's earnings until the plant is commissioned in 2007."
