FLSmidth Airtech has signed a contract with Eastern Province Cement Company Ltd (EPCC) in Dammam, Saudi Arabia to supply four large fabric filter installations. EPCC is a 100 per cent Saudi owned company with both public and private shareholders. The cement plant is located at Al Khursaniyah near the Khursaniyah oil field reservation and close to the Dammam-Kuwait and Jubail-Abu Hadriah Highways.
“This major order confirms FLSmidth Airtech’s leading market position in fabric filters for cement plants,” says Ole Boegh, General Manager for Sales, Operation & Services.
The aim of the project is to reduce the dust emission from the two existing cement lines (line #1 and #2) to less than 15 mg/Nm3 by installing new fabric filter installations to dedust the kiln and bypass gases. FLSmidth Airtech will be supplying the most modern fabric filter installations consisting of two FabriClean® and two RetroClean® filters including ducts, supports, dust transport systems, fans, motors, MCC, etc.
FLSmidth Airtech A/S has over the last years supplied a large number of fabric filters to cement plants in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere in the Middle East, and this additional contract confirms the strength of the company to meet with the demands of the industry - whether such requests are for new fabric filter installations or for upgrades of existing filter installations.
