LV Technology has been chosen to upgrade and set up a new backup cement mill for Falcon Cement Company (FCC) in Bahrain. The companies signed an advisory and engineering service agreement on 30 April in the presence of the FCC’s Chairman, Hisham Al-Rayes, and the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Dr. Hassan A. Fakhroo.
FCC is Bahrain’s only fully integrated cement plant, putting it in an important position considering the nation’s dependence on imports. Speaking at the signing, Hisham Al-Rayes said, “Leveraging LVT’s vast experience and services, FCC will increase the size of its operations and its ability to deliver more consistent supplies of cement to the domestic market with improved quality.”
FCC’s Executive Director, Salah Sharif, added: “We are extremely pleased to announce this agreement with LVT. Together we will implement a series of upgrades, which will increase production at our plant and in turn help to reduce the Kingdom’s dependence on imports. Moreover, we expect to improve the overall operational efficiency of the plant making us more competitive and ensuring that we continue to effectively meet the needs of our customers and the growing demand for high quality, locally produced cement.”
