FL Smidth wins €14 million cement plant expansion contract in Iran
FL Smidth has won a €14.6 million contract to modernize and expand a cement production line near the town of Kermanshar, some 450 kilometers southwest of the Iranian capital, Tehran.
The customer is Gharb Cement Industries, part of the Fars & Khuzestan Cement Co Group, which is Iran’s largest cement producer. After the modernization and expansion of the plant, Gharb Cement Industries will have doubled its production capacity to 4,000 tons of cement per day.
Machinery and equipment will be delivered by FL Smidth over the next 24 months, and the production line is expected to come on stream in November 2005.
The order comprises upgrading of the raw material store, a new ATOX raw mill with auxiliary equipment, a UMS cement mill including auxiliary equipment, and upgrading of the existing pyro system – which includes installation of an SF Cross-Bar cooler.
The total order value is inclusive agreements with FL Smidth Automation and FL Smidth Airtech, the former being responsible for modernization of the existing control systems and the latter to supply new electrostatic precipitators.
This is the fourth major contract awarded to the FL Smidth Group in Iran this year, raising the current year’s total order volume in this country to an amount in excess of 900 mllion Danish Krone ($139.5 million). — (menareport.com)
