FLSmidth Wins New Contract in the USA

02.05.2006
Message to the Copenhagen Stock Exchange no. 14 - 2006

FLSmidth has signed a USD 64 million contract with Rinker Materials in Florida, USA, for a new cement production line at their Brooksville Plant. This success is another example of the upward trend in the US market.
FLSmidth's US project centre, based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is responsible for the project and will supply all the main machinery including the complete pyro system featuring an ILC four-stage preheater and a low-NOx and low-CO2 calciner, a ROTAX-2 kiln, a Multi-Movable Cross-Bar cooler and an OK vertical cement grinding mill. FLSmidth will also provide engineering and a complete FLSmidth Automation control system.
 
The demands of minimizing emissions and energy consumption as well as optimizing life cycle costs drove the design and equipment selection.  Consequently, the awarding of this contract demonstrates FLSmidth's ability to capitalise on its R&D Department's recent achievements such as improved environmental technology, the OK vertical mill and the newly launched energy-efficient Multi-Movable Cross-Bar cooler. Furthermore, FLSmidth's strong local presence in the United States was a differentiating factor.
 
With FLSmidth's new technology, Rinker Materials expects more than a two -fold increase in production capacity to a total of 2.0 million tonnes of cement per year.  
 
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the new line is commissioned in early 2008.
