FLSmidth has received orders from two Brazilian cement producers, comprising a new 3300tpd line and a OK-33 vertical roller mill.
The new kiln line is for Companhia De Cimento Da Paraíba's Pitimbu Plant, in Brazil’s Paraiba state. FLSmidth will supply all major equipment, engineering services, project management and commissioning of the greenfield project. FLSmidth had previous supplied Companhia De Cimento Da Paraíba's Sete Lagoas plant which is operating well above expected capacity.
The second contract, from Cia De Cimento Itambé, consists of a vertical roller mill for cement grinding to be installed at their Balsa Nova Plant located in Brazil’s Paraná state. This marks the 19th OK mill sold in the country.
“The awarding of these orders to FLSmidth is a consequence of a high market demand, and has been given to FLSmidth in spite of great competitor interest in the same area. FLSmidth was able to provide stronger offerings and a greater degree of customer intimacy, and the customers therefore chose to trust FLSmidth with the orders,” President, Cement Division, Per Mejnert Kristensen comments.
