FLSmidth awarded two cement projects in Brazil


Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No. 35-2011, 29 December 2011

FLSmidth has signed a contract for two cement projects worth a total of USD 132m (approximately DKK 750m) with the company Cimpor Cimentos do Brasil Ltda in Brazil.

The contract comprises equipment for the Caxitu project, a new greenfield cement plant in Paraiba State near the town of Joâo Pessoa, and for a new kiln line project at the Cezarina cement plant located in Goias State, 130 kilometres from Goiania.

The scope of supply for the Caxitu project includes a circular limestone storage, a longitudinal storage and reclaimer system for raw materials and a similar system for additives, a longitudinal storage for petcoke, an Atox raw mill, a Tirax coal mill, an in-line calciner preheater system and a Rotax kiln and SF cooler. The scope of supply for the Cezarina project comprises a complete pyro line including an Atox raw mill, a CF silo, an in-line calciner preheater system, a Rotax kiln and an FLSmidth Cross-Bar cooler.

FLSmidth will also supply air pollution control systems for the two projects, featuring the latest pyro technology for burning and utilising waste fuels.

"Brazil is continuously investing heavily in development projects, both to support upcoming events such as the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games and to provide housing and build infrastructure, and this order enables FLSmidth to maintain its leading role in supporting Brazil's rapidly expanding cement industry, and maintain close ties with our long term customer Cimpor", Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.

The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until commissioning in 2013.
