FLSmidth has received an order worth in excess of around US$35.7m from Orient Cement Ltd for the supply of main equipment for a greenfield cement plant to be located in the state of Karnataka, southern India. The plant will have a capacity of 6000tpd.

The order covers engineering and supply of main equipment from limestone crusher to packing plant. Included in the scope of supply are key components for raw material crushing equipment, limestone, coal and additive stores, raw material grinding system using roller press technology, a vertical mill for coal grinding, pyroprocessing system with Cross-Bar cooler, two vertical mills for cement grinding as well as packing and loading system for trucks and rail wagons.

"Orient Cement is a well-known customer to FLSmidth. In 2007, we supplied the company with a pyroprocessing system with a capacity of 4000tpd for a brownfield project," Peter Meijnert Kristensen, group executive vice president, comments. The order will be booked by the cement division and contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until the end of 2014.
