FLSmidth has signed a contract worth approximately EUR21m (approximately DKK 156m) with the Egyptian cement producer Arabian Cement Company for supply of engineering and equipment for a 360 tonnes per day cement mill and packing plant.
The equipment is to be installed next to the company’s existing cement production plant located at Ramliya, near the city of Suez - a 6,000tpd facility supplied by FLSmidth on a turnkey basis in 2006-2008.
The contract comprises all major equipment such as two UMS cement mills and cement silos as well as three cement packing/dispatch plants.
A number of FLSmidth subsidiaries and divisions will participate in the project, providing dosing and weighing equipment, dedusting filters and cement packing systems. A complete electrical and control equipment package is also included in the contract.
The project will be implemented in parallel with FLSmidth’s current supply of engineering and equipment for a complete second 6000tpd cement production line at the plant, which was contracted in June 2008.
