FLSmidth awarded contract for the largest kiln system in Mexico and Latin America

24.10.2006
Message to the Copenhagen Stock Exchange no. 33 - 2006, 24 October 2006

CEMEX, one of the world's leading global cement producers, has awarded FLSmidth a contract for the largest kiln system in Mexico and Latin America. Situated at the Tepeaca plant, Mexico the new line will have a capacity of 10,000 metric tonnes clinker per day. The kiln system is part of a 4.4 million tonnes per year expansion project, and the customer will invite tenders for additional supplies at a later stage.
The USD 35.9m project demonstrates FLSmidth's leadership and capability in designing large clinker production systems. The scope of supply includes the latest generation Multi-Movable Cross-Bar Cooler. Furthermore, the ILC 5-stage preheater with low NOx and CO calciner will ensure that the strict environmental and efficiency demands are met.
 
With a strong local presence in North America, FLSmidth was able to differentiate itself from possible competitors and continued its strong relationship with CEMEX throughout the discussions for the project.
 
FLSmidth's US project centre based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, who is responsible for the project, attributes the success of the contract to its ability to act as a complete partner for the supply of engineering services, project management, and commissioning as well as all major machines for the clinker production line.
 
CEMEX MÉXICO S.A. DE C.V., is initiating this significant project as part of its 100 year anniversary celebration.
 
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the expansion project is commissioned in 2009.
