Two FLSmidth cement plant orders now effective

Published by
World Cement,

Following an announcement in August 2018 that FLSmidth had signed contracts for two Central US cement plants, these contracts have now been made effective.

The two contracts awarded to FLSmidth are for one greenfield and one brownfield cement plant. Together these plants will be worth over €250 million and will form part of FLSmidth’s order intake for 3Q18.

With planned locations in Central America, the plants are expected to supply cement predominantly to local markets. Commissioning is likely to be within 24 to 36 months and the plants, once operational, will have a capacity of 2000 and 3500 tpd, respectively. Both contracts include plans for design and engineering, equipment supply, automation systems, training, and advisory services for installation and commissioning.

“These orders mark the culmination of a close collaboration between the customer and FLSmidth and demonstrate our ability to work with contractors from anywhere in the world, based on our experience and competencies from the cement industry, our global presence, and the know-how of our 12 000 employees,” said Jan Kjaersgaard, President of Cement at FLSmidth. “We are extremely proud to have been chosen as the supplier of these two cement plants.”

FLSmidth provides sustainable productivity to the global mining and cement industries.
