In a hot Saudi Arabian cement market, keeping production costs down is a critical competitive factor – Saudi-based, Arabian Cement Company is doing exactly that with a new efficiency upgrade, which will improve the operation of the existing line with less fuel and power consumption.

“The Saudi Arabian cement market is highly competitive with increasing demand, we are therefore constantly looking at ways to improve the efficiency at our Rabigh site,” explains Dr. Badr Osama Johar, CEO at Arabian Cement Company. “With FLSmidth having provided the original line, they were the obvious candidate for the upgrade – we wanted a trusted partner, who knows the ins and outs of the plant and are able to secure the success of the upgrade,” Johar adds.

FLSmidth is pleased to receive the order from Arabian Cement Company that will take our team back to familiar grounds in Rabigh and to an FLSmidth Kiln delivered back in 2008. “The order reaffirms our strong and long-lasting relationship with ACC,” says Omar Rabia, Sales Manager of Upgrade Sales at FLSmidth. “The upgrade once again underlines our position as the preferred supplier of sustainable and productivity-enhancing solutions,” Omar concludes.
