Qatari cement demand has been boosted by ongoing infrastructure development related to the FIFA 2020 World Cup preparations.

The two 4200 kW FCB B-mills with FCB TSV 4000 classifiers for cement grinding form part of a turnkey contract that also includes a 6400 kW mill with classifier for raw meal grinding, five-stage preheater with FCB Zero-Nox Preca system, kiln, and two process filters.
