FLSmidth wins large cement order in Indonesia

The Danish comapny FLSmidth has signed a contract worth approximately 55 million Euros with the Indonesian cement producer PT Semen Gresik for an 8,000 tonnes per day cement production line. The contract is for the Tuban plant, which is located about 100 km west of Surabaya in East Java, Indonesia.
The Gresik Group is today Indonesia’s largest cement producer with a total annual capacity of approximately 18 million tonnes cement. The scope of the contract comprises all equipment supplies for the main part of the production line including an ATOX raw mill, an ATOX coal mill, a preheater, a rotary kiln, a kiln burner, a clinker cooler and silo equipment as well as a complete control system for the entire plant and all laboratory equipment. The new line will be Tuban’s fourth production line. The three existing ones were supplied by FLSmidth during the 1990s.
“The Indonesian cement market is very well-known to FLSmidth, and we have a long and outstanding relationship with the Gresik Group. In the past, FLSmidth has provided technology for three Gresik cement plants: Tuban, Tonasa and Padang. Most of the equipment at these plants was supplied by FLSmidth, with the first production line at Padang dating as far back as 1910,” Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.
The contract will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth’s earnings until the equipment is delivered during 2010.
