FLSmidth has been awarded a contract worth approximately EUR40m for machinery supplies to upgrade an existing cement production line at Grupa Ozarow’s cement plant in Ozarow, Poland, some 160km south of Warsaw.
The scope of supply includes an ATOX raw mill and an ATOX coal mill as well as the upgrading of kiln No. 2 at Ozarow to an ILC-Low-NOx kiln with 2-string preheater and a Multi-Movable Cross-Bar cooler. The production capacity of the new line will be up to 7000tpd.
FLSmidth’s subsidiaries FLSmidth MAAG Gear and FLSmidth Pfister will supply gear units and a coal meal feeder, respectively. The contract also includes first time spare parts.
The Ozarow cement factory was originally supplied by FLSmidth and commissioned in 1978. In 1995, as part of the Polish government’s mass privatisation programme, the plant was sold to CRH, a leading international building materials group. Today, Ozarow is one of FLSmidth’s most important clients in Poland, with a long tradition for developing new projects in collaboration with FLSmidth.
