FLSmidth to build first modern cement plant in Kazakhstan

25.01.2007
Message to the Copenhagen Stock Exchange, No. 04 - 2007, 25 January 2007

FLSmidth has contracted to supply a cement plant to Kokshe Cement, which is partly owned by East Energy Company (EEC) of Kazakhstan. The value of the contract exceeds DKK 670m (approximately EUR 90m). The some two million tonnes per year plant will be built 300 kilometres northwest of Astana, the Kazakhstani capital, and is expected to be operational in the summer of 2009.
FLSmidth will supply all the essential machinery for the plant, and several FLSmidth companies and divisions are participating in the project as equipment suppliers. The scope of supply includes an EV crusher, raw material stores, an ATOX raw mill, a complete ILC two-support kiln with preheater and SF Cross-Bar cooler plus two OK cement mills. FLSmidth is also to supply its hitherto largest clinker store, which will have a capacity of 100,000 tonnes. The contract includes silos, filters and precipitators plus a complete quality and process control system, Pfister dosing equipment and two complete Ventomatic packing lines. Training of customer personnel is also included in the contract.
    
This is the first time FLSmidth has contracted to supply a complete facility in Kazakhstan, which will be the most modern and environmentally friendly cement plant to be built in a former Soviet Union country. Local civil works will be handled by the customer himself.  
 
"The order confirms our expectations of growing cement industry activity in the former Soviet Union countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). FLSmidth is actively pursuing the vast opportunities in this region, for example by having opened a representative office in Moscow last year," comments Mr Jørgen Huno Rasmussen, Group CEO.
 
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the plant is commissioned in 2009.
