FLSmidth has won a contract worth approximately EUR100m to supply machinery and equipment for a new 4200tpd production line to ETA Star International LLC, Dubai. ETA Star International will be constructing the plant for its customer, FCKS, a state-owned company in Angola.

The new greenfield plant will be situated in Chindonga close to Sumbe Town in the Kwansa Sul province 300 kilometres south of Angola’s capital Luanda. The project is a continuation of the collaboration FLSmidth currently has with this customer on a project in the United Arabic Emirates.

FLSmidth is to supply all machinery for the plant including three crushers, a raw material store, an ATOX raw mill, a three-support kiln with ILC five-string preheater and SF Cross Bar cooler, two UMS cement mills and a complete packaging plant with four lines provided by FLSmidth’s subsidiary Ventomatic.

 The contract also includes a state-of-the-art QCX/Robolab quality control system and an ECS process control system supplied by FLSmidth Automation as well as a complete electrical equipment package and FLSmidth Airtech fabric filters.
