FLSmidth to supply production line to Spanish Cementos Molins
Published: 22 June 2007

FLSmidth has won a contract worth approximately DKK 230m (approx. EUR31m) to supply equipment for a new 4100tpd production line to Cementos Molins, Spain. The production line will be the fourth supplied by FLSmidth to Cementos Molins’ plant near Barcelona.

The contract comprises an ATOX raw mill, a raw meal silo, a complete ILC two-support kiln with preheater and a Multi Movable Cross-Bar cooler. In addition, the contract includes a mill gear from FLSmidth’s product company MAAG Gear, FLSmidth Airtech filters and Pfister dosing equipment. The contract also includes supervision services.

Based on state-of-the-art environmental technology that complies with the European Union’s stringent emission standards, the production line will include a calciner characterised by low NOx and CO emissions.

The contract was signed on behalf of Cementos Molins by Mr. Juan Molins, grandson of Joaquim Molins with whom FLSmidth signed the first contract between the two companies back in 1946. The signing of this contract emphasises the longstanding relationship between the two companies and underlines the strength of the Spanish cement market, which is the most important in Europe.

 The new production line will be the plant’s sixth and is expected to replace the capacity of production lines 3, 4 and 5, all supplied by FLSmidth in the years from 1962 to 1972.
