FLSmidth has been awarded a contract worth US$83m from the company Margem Companhia de Mineração (a subsidiary of Supremo Cimentos) for delivery of equipment and services for their new cement production line in Brazil. The plant is located in Adrianópolis, in the State of Paraná, approximately 130km North of Curitiba.

The scope of supply includes all major process equipment including an EV crusher, a stacker/reclaimer, ATOX mills for both raw and fuel grinding, an ILC 5-stage preheater, a ROTAX-2 kiln, an FLSmidth Cross-BarTM cooler and an OK Mill for cement grinding. Furthermore, air pollution control systems, a packing plant, as well as automation and control equipment are included. FLSmidth MAAG Gear and FLSmidth Pfister will also contribute to what is a full scope systems supply.

"The continuously growing demand for infrastructure in Latin America makes it an interesting market for FLSmidth. Our capability of delivering full scope systems, as underlined by this order, reinforces FLSmidth's strong position and our ability to tap into the important Latin American market, in particular the market in Brazil," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.
