FLSmidth has received an order worth approximately €48 million (DKK 357 million) from HeidelbergCement India Limited for the supply of equipment to their Indian capacity expansion project in competition with Chinese and other international players.
The scope of the contract includes a 5000 tpd pyroprocess line at their existing plant in Narsingarh, M.P., a new clinker grinding system at their existing grinding unit in Imlai, M.P. and a material handling system at their grinding unit in Jhansi, U.P. The contract comprises supply of crushers for coal and additives; storage facilities for limestone, additives and coal; an ATOX raw mill; an ATOX coal mill; a complete pyro line with SF Cross-Bar cooler; one UMS cement mill; a CF silo; air pollution control equipment and gears for the three grinding mills. In addition, FLSmidth will supply all the electrical and control equipment.
Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments: "India is a very well-known market to FLSmidth. We delivered our first cement plant in India in 1904 and today FLSmidth has more than 3000 employees in the country. Our strong local presence is greatly appreciated by Indian customers. FLSmidth is therefore well-equipped to meet the increasing demand for cement from this the second largest cement consumer in the world. Furthermore, India offers very interesting growth opportunities in customer services and operation and maintenance activities as well as for our minerals business."
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until commissioning in late 2011.
