Order for North African cement plant becomes effective

Published by
World Cement,

FLSmidth has confirmed a contract to construct a new cement plant in North Africa, after the Danish engineering company received the down payment from the customer. The contract had been previously been announced in May of this year but had been conditional upon receipt of payment, among a number of other conditions.

The confirmation of the deal “marks the culmination of a close collaboration between the customer and FLSmidth and demonstrates out ability to work with contractors from anywhere in the world,” said Per Mejnert Kristensen.

The order includes engineering, equipment supply, construction supervision, commissioning, and training and is valued at more than €100 million.

The Danish company said it had received the order “in part as a result of the partnership between FLSmidth and Beijing Triumph International Engineering Co”. Beijing Triumph International Engineering is part of China-based CNBM Group, which is responsible for the construction of the cement plant.

When complete, the cement plant will have a capacity of 12 000 tpd and supply mainly into the North African market.

FLSmidth provided no further details on the location or the scope of supply (i.e. whether clinker production or cement grinding only); however, the €100 million order value would be on the low side for a 12 000 tpd clinker production line. For comparison, the Danish company recently signed a contract to supply a clinker production plant in Pakistan with a capacity of only 7700 tpd at a contract value of €90 million.
