Published: 03 January 2008

FLSmidth has signed a contract to provide equipment supplies and engineering for a complete greenfield cement plant with a capacity of 3500tpd of clinker. The plant will be situated close to the city of Kursk, approximately 700 km south of Moscow.

Valued at approximately 64m euro (slightly more than DKK 475m), the contract was signed with OOO Kurskaya stroitelnaya companiya, a company newly formed to establish its first cement plant.
 
The order which will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth’s earnings until the expected commissioning in mid 2010 follows two important contracts in 2007 for cement plants north of Moscow and in St. Petersburg respectively.
