FLSmidth has agreed with Heidelberg on a one year service agreement contract to support their cement plant in Kjøpsvik in Norway.
The service agreement between the second largest cement producer in the world, Heidelberg, and FLSmidth is based on a partnership between FLSmidth's global team of specialists and the Heidelberg Kjøpsvik operators and process engineers.
The FLSmidth team will real-time monitor and diagnose the plant and advise the Kjøpsvik process operators and process engineers on improvements, increasing availability and reducing operating costs, while at the same time ensuring the plant will maximise its performance.
Service is increasingly important for FLSmidth and a growing business; in the last quarter alone service business across FLSmidth grew 24% compared with the same quarter last year. Although global growth has slowed down, the equipment of many of our existing customers still needs to be maintained and optimised in order to increase the productivity of the plant. With more than 90% of the lifecycle cost of cement plants being OPEX cost, service agreements are an area of continued growth potential for FLSmidth.
