Lafarge Emirates Cement to install FLSmidth burner at UAE plant

Lafarge Emirates Cement has chosen FLSmidth’s JETFLEX® PLUS burner for its Fujairah plant in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Sohail Qaiser, Proces Manager at Lafarge Emirates Cement, said: “As the business has shifted towards using low-cost fuels with high-quality clinker, we have made an ambitious decision and chosen the best option on the market – this next generation burner from FLSmidth."

Qaiser added: “We expect it will lead to a significant change in fuel mix cost and a more sustainable kiln operation.”

The JETFLEX PLUS burner is the first to be installed in the LafargeHolcim Group, and FLSmidth was selected for procurement and supervision of the installation of it. The JETFLEX PLUS burner has rotatable jet air nozzles, allowing for optimal adjustment of the flame as well as the lowest NOx emissions for various fuel types and operating conditions.

Simon Jensen, Head of FLSmidth in the Middle East, commented: “This order further strengthens our position in the Middle East and results from our long-standing presence in the United Arab Emirates as well as our close working relationship with customers. By supplying the market’s most sustainable and energy-efficient burner solution, we are helping Lafarge Emirates Cement achieve its goal of enhanced productivity.”
