FLSmidth has been awarded a contract valued at more than DKK350 million. The contract is for the delivery of equipment for a greenfield plant in Paraguay, South America.

With expected plant startup within 24 months, it is hoped that the plant will be fully operational in 2021. Mainly supplying cement to its local market, the plant will have a capacity of 2500 tpd. From crushing to packing, FLSmidth will design and deliver energy equipment for the entire production line, while the customer will be in charge of the civil design and construction of the plant.

“The customer needed a state-of-the-art solution to meet the steady demand for cement in this developing region,” said Jan Kjaersgaard, President of Cement at FLSmidth. “This contract reinforces our position as the leading supplier of the most productive and energy-efficient equipment and technology for customers in the cement industry who focus on productivity, reliability, and sustainability.”
