FLSmidth has received an order for a new complete cement production line in Pakistan. The Danish engineering company received the order from Karachi-based Power Cement Ltd, a subsidiary of the Araf Habib Group.

The new 7700 tpd production will comprise two projects: clinker production, and cement production and dispatch. It will expand the company’s two existing lines in Nooriabad, northeast of Karachi. FLSmidth will supply the complete range of equipment from crushing of raw materials to final cement packing and loading.

“The new production line underlines FLSmidth’s strong position in Pakistan,” said Per Mejnert Kristensen, Group Executive Vice President of FLSmidth’s Cement Division. “It will emphasise the value of a highly efficient modern cement plant with minimised environmental impact and our state of the art quality control system for cement.”

The total order is valued at more than €90 million and will be completed by the end of 2018. Equipment will be supplied by FLSmidth and its product brands, including planetary gear units from FLSmidth MAAG Gear, fabric filters from FLSmidth Airtech, weighing and metering systems from FLSmidth Pfister, and a fully-automated pakcing plants from FLSmidth Ventomatic.

The order marks FLSmidth’s second significant contract in Pakistan this year. In January, the company received an order from Maple Leaf Cement for a complete 7300 tpd cement production line to be located in Iskanderabad in the Mianwali District.
