FLSmidth to work for New Phosphate Rock Terminal in Jordan


Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No. 13-2010, 6 May 2010


FLSmidth is being awarded a contract worth approximately 70m Euros (DKK 520m) from Afcons Infrastructure Limited, India who signed a contract worth approximately 200 Million USD with Jordan Phosphate Mines Co., Jordan, for a new Phosphate Rock Terminal. The terminal will be located approximately 25 km south of Aqaba - Jordan.  


The work comprises a land terminal where the phosphate rock is unloaded at the truck unloading facility, suitable for self-tipping or bottom-discharge trucks comprising also tippling platforms for fixed-trailer trucks from where the phosphate rock is conveyed by means of chain conveyors, trough belt conveyors and reversible shuttle belt conveyors with a capacity of 1,800 tonnes per hour into the covered bulk flat store with a storage capacity of 240,000 tonnes. From there it is discharged and transported by collecting belt conveyors and overhead two parallel pipe conveyors 1,800 tonnes per hour each to a marine terminal with two rail mounted ship loaders having a loading capacity of 2,200 tonnes per hour each.


The scope of supply will include design, engineering, manufacture, supply, transportation of mechanical and electrical equipments to the site, fabrication, erection, testing, commissioning as well as training of the terminal's personnel and performance testing.


"The international demand for phosphate is high and this order highlights the fact that FLSmidth can offer our customers single source solutions, not only within metal mining but also in various other markets like steel, port facilities, the energy sector, industrial water treatment and in this case - phosphate for fertilizer products," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.


The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until end 2012.
