FLSmidth has won a contract worth approximately approximately EUR110m to supply machinery and equipment for a new 7500tpd production line to Syrian Cement Company, a 75% owned subsidiary of Egyptian-based Orascom Construction Industries (OCI). The new greenfield plant will be situated close to Syria’s border with Turkey, some 500 kilometres north of the capital of Damascus.
The EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) project will be carried out in cooperation between FLSmidth and OCI. OCI’s own construction division will handle the construction work, which is not included in FLSmidth’s contract.
The contract comprises a crushing plant and stacker/reclaimer systems, an ATOX 55 raw mill, a raw meal silo, a complete ILC three-support kiln with two-string preheater an SF Cross-Bar cooler, two OK cement mills, cement silos and a complete electrical equipment package, electrostatic precipitators and fabric filters and a complete quality and process control system.
The contract also includes equipment to be supplied by several of the FLSmidth product companies, including a complete cement packing system from FLSmidth Ventomatic, dosing equipment from FLSmidth Pfister and gear units from FLSmidth MAAG Gear.
Stringent NOx, SOx and dust emission standards are to be observed at the plant. In addition, energy efficient vertical mills for the cement grinding will be supplied.
FLSmidth has already successfully undertaken projects with OCI in Algeria, Nigeria, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan and Libya.
