FLSmidth to supply cement plant featuring Egypt's largest cement mill

18.03.2008
Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No. 14-2008, 18 March 2008

FLSmidth has been awarded a contract worth approximately EUR 60m (DKK 450m) for engineering and machinery supplies to El Sewedy Cement Company's new greenfield cement plant. The 5000 tonnes per day plant will be built near Ain Soukhna in the Suez province, 110 kilometres east of Cairo.
The contract is for all major machinery for the plant and includes an EV limestone/clay crusher, raw material stores, an ATOX raw mill, a CF silo, a complete ILC 3-support kiln including a 5-stage preheater and an SF Cross-Bar cooler, a clinker storage, an OK 42 cement mill and cement silos.
 
The OK mill will be the largest cement mill installed in Egypt.
 
A number of FLSmidth subsidiaries and divisions will participate in the contract. FLSmidth Ventomatic will supply three packaging lines, both vertical mill gears will be from FLSmidth MAAG, FLSmidth Airtech will supply filters and FLSmidth Automation will supply a complete QCX quality control system.
 
The cement plant will be the first to be built based on the new licences issued by the Egyptian Ministry of Industry last year. "We are very pleased that this contract, the first of its kind in Egypt, was awarded to FLSmidth. There are undoubtedly more to come in the Egyptian cement industry, and we expect a significant share of these," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.
 
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the equipment has been shipped in early or mid 2010.
