FLSmidth to build grinding plant in Rwanda

Published by
World Cement,


FLSmidth has signed a contract with Prime Cement for engineering, procurement and supply of equipment for a cement grinding plant in Musanze, Rwanda. The project will mark the first time an OK vertical roller mill is to be supplied into the East African cement market.

The project is also the first full-scope grinding plant in Rwanda, where Cimerwa, a subsidiary of South Africa’s PPC, has enjoyed a monopoly on cement production.

The cement grinding plant will have a capacity of 0.7 million tpy. The contract is to become effective upon receipt of a down payment from the customer, expected later this year.

“This is the latest project to underline FLSmidth’s strength as the leading supplier of the most productive and energy-efficient equipment and technology available in the market,” said Per Mejnert Kristensen, Group Executive Vice President of the Cement Division at FLSmidth.

The contract includes a complete range of equipment from storage to packing and cement loading.

Equipment will include a gear unit from FLSmidth MAAG Gear, filters from FLSmidth Airtech, a control system and plant automation from FLSmidth Automation, a packing plant from FLSmidth Ventomatic, and a weighing and metering system from FLSMidth Pfister.
