FLSmidth wins large lime plant project in Uruguay

FLSmidth has signed a contract worth approximately 35 million US$ (approximately 200 million DKK) with Cementos del Plata SA, for the supply of equipment and technology to their lime manufacturing facility located approximately 20 km northwest of Treinta y Tres, Uruguay. FLSmidth is to supply a complete 500 t/d lime manufacturing plant, making it the largest capacity lime plant in Uruguay. The scope of supply includes equipment from primary crushing to packing and loadout as well as material handling equipment and control systems. Cementos del Plata SA is a partnership between Administración Nacional de Combustibles, Alcohol y Pórtland de la R.O.del Uruguay (ANCAP, 95 %) and the Argentinian company Loma Negra CIASA (5 %), which markets and distributes cement, clinker and other products made by the Portland Cement Division of ANCAP. “FLSmidth has a long history with the ANCAP group dating back to 1956 and we are currently executing an upgrade project for the company‘s Paysand cement plant (see Company Announcement no. 20–2010). This order to supply Uruguay‘s largest capacity lime plant, confirms our close relationship with the group and proves the successful merging of our cement and minerals operations”, Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen says. The order will contribute beneficially to FLSmidth‘s earnings until commissioning in 2013.
