FLSmidth wins large cement project in Nigeria

World Cement,

FLSmidth has received an order from the Nigerian company, BUA International Limited, to supply a complete 6000 tpd cement plant in Nigeria. The plant will be located some 100 km from Benin City, the capital of the Edo State in southern Nigeria.

The order is a complete solution including equipment supplies, engineering, supervision and training. The scope of equipment supplies includes EV crushers for raw material preparation, an ATOX 50 mill for raw meal grinding, a pyro system consisting of a five-stage In-Line Calciner preheater, a two-base kiln, UMS mills for cement grinding and four packing plants, as well as the company’s latest design Cross-Bar 16x50 clinker cooler.

The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the contract.

FLSmidth CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen said: "FLSmidth has been active in the African continent since the early 1900s. Nigeria is the country in Africa with the largest population and combined with a growing economy and increasing infrastructure investments, it is a market with large potential. This project is therefore very important to us and will further strengthen our position in the region as a supplier of high quality solutions".

The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until late 2013.
