FLSmidth has been awarded a contract worth approximately €55 million by the Russian company Novoroscement, to supply equipment and supervision for the modernisation of its Proletariy cement plant. The plant is located at Novorossijsk in southern Russia, near the Black Sea.
The order entails an upgrade of the existing production line from a present capacity of 1740 tpd to a future capacity of 6000 tpd. The modernisation of the production line will lead to a more environmentally friendly and energy efficient production process.
The equipment to be supplied comprises an Atox 57.5 raw mill, a 5-stage preheater, modification of the existing kiln shell, new filters, FLSmidth's latest design Cross-bar cooler, a clinker storage and a complete new control system.
FLSmidth CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen commented that the company is happy to be extending its working with Novoroscement, which has been developing since 1914.
“We see a great market in Russia for the modernisation of existing cement plants and the order from Novoroscement offers prospects of other major expansion projects in the region, especially when looking towards the 2014 Winter Olympics," he added.
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until mid 2013.
