FLSmidth has received an order from Oman Cement Company (SAOG) for the supply of milling equipment for a cement plant located in the Rusayl Industrial Area, near Port Sultan Qaboos, Muscat.
The scope of supply for the US$38 million (DKK205 million) order comprises a 150 tph closed circuit ball mill system, including two cement silos with a capacity of 8000 t each, a high-efficiency central drive for the ball mill and a dynamic separator and fabric filters to reduce dust emission.
Bjarne Moltke Hansen, Group Executive Vice President, said, "Infrastructure growth in Oman has created a huge demand for cement. Oman Cement Company are already upgrading their existing production lines and now want to set up a fifth cement grinding unit. FLSmidth has a strong service capability and presence in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and therefore has good relations with the company."
The order will be booked by the cement division and contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until mid-2015.
