FLSmidth Minerals wins large order for ferronickel kilns and dryers in Brazil

29.05.2007
Message to the Copenhagen Stock Exchange, No. 12 - 2007, 29 May 2007

FLSmidth Minerals has been awarded a contract for over 72m euro (approximately DKK 530m) by Anglo American Brasil (AABR) to supply two rotary kilns and rotary dryers to the pyro-metallurgical facility for the production of ferronickel at the Barro Alto laterite deposits located in the Goias state of Brazil, 175 kilometres northeast of Brazil's capital, Brasilia.
The project will be carried out in cooperation between FLSmidth Minerals' Brazilian office and the American technology centre.
 
The contract includes two production lines each comprised of a complete rotary dryer/agglomerator system and a rotary kiln system. In addition, several FLSmidth product companies will be participating in the project, including FLSmidth Airtech with electrostatic precipitators and bag filters and Pfister with coal distribution systems.
 
AABR has significant technological expertise in the area of the dryer/agglomeration. The project will therefore be a co-development between AARB and FLSmidth Minerals in the optimization of the dryer/agglomeration process. The production facility will process lateritic ores containing ~1.8% nickel into ferronickel of 35 % nickel.
 
"This project confirms FLSmidth Minerals' leadership in the ferronickel industry as well as the FLSmidth Group's overall leadership in pyro technology and its ability to supply complete rotary kiln systems to the global cement and minerals industry," Mr Jørgen Huno Rasmussen, Group CEO says.
 
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the facility is commissioned in 2009.
