FLSmidth has signed a contract with a Russian company for machinery supplies for a new 5500tpd cement clinker production line to be placed at an existing cement plant in Russia. The contract has a value slightly over EUR65m.
The scope of the contract includes an ATOX raw mill, a CF raw meal silo, an ILC 3-support kiln with 4-stage preheater and a Multi-Movable Cross-Bar cooler. In addition, FLSmidth Airtech fabric filters, FLSmidth Pfister dosing equipment and FLSmidth Automation laboratory systems are included.
"The signing of this contract proves that FLSmidth now has gained a strong foothold on the Russian cement market. In 2008, we will further strengthen our presence on the cement markets in the CIS countries by increasing the staff number at our office in Moscow," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.
