FLSmidth, in association with Six Construct, has received an order from Qatar Primary Materials Co. (QPMC) for the supply of conveying and stacking systems for the Gabbro terminal expansion located in Mesaieed Industrial City, approximately 35 km south of Doha. The complete system will have a capacity of 30 million tpa of building materials and will cost approximately €140 million (DKK1 billion).
The machinery to be supplied includes a large high capacity conveying system, a complete integrated instrumentation and control system, stockyard equipment, including six stackers and all electrical equipment, and an advanced stockyard and truck management system. The company will also provide training to client employees.
The new system will be more efficient and environmentally friendly. The installation of the conveying systems will reduce the environmental impact caused by the current transportation system, while the FLSmidth automated stockyard management system will allow for increased and optimised operation of the terminal. This will considerably improve the efficiency of the system.
The order will be booked by the Material Handling division and contribute to FLSmidth's earnings until 2016.
