FLSmidth has been awarded a contract from Arabian Cement Company (ACC) for operation and maintenance of the second line at their cement plant near the city of Suez in Egypt. The second line is designed and supplied by FLSmidth.
 
The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the contract which covers five years of operation and maintenance of a clinker production line with a capacity of 6000tpd. 

FLSmidth is already operating and maintaining the first line at the plant which was built by FLSmidth. Included in the new order is an extension of the operation and maintenance of the first line so that both contracts will run concurrently for five years after start-up of the second line.   
 
The scope of services includes recruitment and training of local employees who will be in charge of operating and maintaining the plant, as well as spare parts and technical support.  The objective of the contract is to ensure a high level of production while maintaining the asset value of the plant through a first class operation and maintenance of the plant.
