FLSmidth has signed a contract worth EUR60m for the supply of a new plant to DG Khan Cement Co Ltd, which is owned by one of Pakistan’s largest industrial groups – Nishat Group. The new production line will be Pakistan’s hitherto largest and will have a capacity of 6,700tpd of clinker.
The F.L.Smidth machinery and equipment will be delivered over the next 20 months, and the order will be taken to income in step with the equipment deliveries, which means until commissioning scheduled for the beginning of 2007.
This selection of machinery and equipment provides DG Khan Cement Co. with a technology that will reduce both energy consumption and emission levels to a minimum, whilst maintaining the highest international environmental standards.
“FLSmidth has been active in Pakistan for more than 90 years, and the signing of this contract for Pakistan’s hitherto largest production line makes us well placed in the Pakistani market which is seeing strong growth in cement consumption,” comments Mr Jørgen Huno Rasmussen, Group CEO.
