FLSmidth hosts seminars for booming Pakistani cement industry

FLSmidth recently hosted two seminars in Pakistan, attracting more than than 170 representatives of the Pakistani cement industry. The seminars in Lahore and Karachi “brought the combined knowledge of FLSmidth specialists and sales people directly to the local cement industry,” the company said.

Pakistan’s cement industry is currently undergoing a boom in capacity addition, responding to increased demand for cement from infrastructure projects, driven by investment under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor.

FLSmidth is currently undertaking a number of projects in the country, including the construction of a new 9000 tpd plant for D.G. Khan in Baluchistan, a 7300 tpd plant for Maple Leaf Cement in Punjab, and a 7700 tpd plant for Power Cement in Sindh. The combined value of these orders is in excess of €200 million.

The theme of the seminars was Sustainable Productivity in the Cement Industry with a programme that “focused on the latest technologies from a strategic and investment point of view,” the company continued.

“The seminars provided the participant with the opportunity to learn more about a variety of technologies – from raw materials grinding to the packing plant.”

Topics covered by the presentations included achieving a swift return on investment in materials handling projects to trends in harmful emissions control. “As a result, the content was applicable to all cement industry stakeholders, from process managers, production and maintenance managers, to plant managers and owners,” the company explained.

The Danish company now plans to arrange similar events for customers throughout 2018 in various other regions.
