FLSmidth has received a contract worth approximately €150 million (approximately DKK1.1 billion) from the Russian company Kaluga Cement Plant LLC for the supply of a complete cement plant. The plant will be located in the Kaluga province some 300 km southwest of the Russian capital of Moscow.
The order underlines FLSmidth's ability to accommodate the customer's need for one source supply and includes provision of equipment, engineering, supervision, training, transportation and spare parts - all supplied by FLSmidth.
The new production line will have a kiln capacity of 8500 tpd equivalent to approximately 3 million tpa, making it the biggest new kiln in Europe. The equipment supplies include three OK vertical roller mills for clinker and slag grinding as well as ABON primary crushers. The OK mills will be the first sold to the Russian market. A complete electrical, automation and control equipment package will also be provided by FLSmidth for the new production line.
"This order was won through close collaboration with the customer to find solutions that benefit both parties. FLSmidth has a long standing local presence in Russia and the order from Kaluga, which was won against keen competition, underlines our continued strength as a preferred supplier to this important market, which is showing signs of recovery after the crisis", said Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen.
The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until commissioning in 2014.
