FLSmidth has signed its third contract this year for equipment for a greenfield cement plant in Russia. The contract is with Italian Buzzi Unicem S.p.A and its German subsidiary Dyckerhoff AG. On top of this contract, FLSmidth is to supply another equipment package to Buzzi Unicem for a new cement production line at an existing plant in Ukraine. The combined value of the contracts is approximately EUR40m.
The Russian plant will be situated close to the city of Akbulak, southwest of the Ural Mountains, some 45km north of the Kazakhstani border. The Ukranian plant, at which the new line will be placed, is situated in the north-western part of Ukraine in the Rivne region, some 300km west of Kiev.
FLSmidth is to supply equipment for the two cement plants’ 6,000tpd pyro-processing lines and raw grinding installations. The scope of supply includes CF silos, FLSmidth Pfister raw meal feeders, dryer crushers and complete ILC three-support kilns with two-string three-stage preheaters and SF Cross-Bar coolers.
Equipment delivery is expected to begin in the spring of 2009.
