FLSmidth has received an order worth DKK 515m for Qatari cement producer Al Khalij Cement covering supply of a complete cement production line for the customer's plant in Umm Bab, approximately 100 km east of Doha.
The production line will be a duplicate of the existing line, which was supplied by FLSmidth in 2007. The order covers all main equipment for the production line: conveyor transport systems, mills, complete pyro line, electrical and automation systems as well as filters.
The production line is being supplied in cooperation with CNBM International Engineering, which is part of China National Building Materials (CNBM) - the largest building materials group in China and a global supplier of integrated EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) projects. FLSmidth's role in the cooperation is to engineer the plant and supply the main equipment. CNBM is the turnkey contractor and received the order from Al Khalij Cement in cooperation with FLSmidth.
"The FLSmidth and CNBM offering combines environmentally cutting-edge process know-how, engineering and equipment supply from FLSmidth with a cost efficient EPC contract. Together, we can offer the customer the best of two worlds," President of the Cement Division Per Mejnert Kristensen comments.
The order will be booked by the Cement division and contribute to FLSmidth's earnings until mid 2015.
