Currently FLSmidth is carrying out an upgrade of the two production lines, which were originally supplied by the German KHD and have been in operation since the mid 1980’s. When the upgrade is completed in early 2014 each line will have a capacity of 5200 t/d, as opposed to the current capacity of 3800 t/d. Egypt is a very well-known market to FLSmidth, and the company has supplied several cement plants in the country, which is undertaking large investments in the development of its infrastructure.
FLSmidth has been awarded a contract by the Egyptian National Cement Company for operation and maintenance of two of their production lines located in Cairo/Egypt. The contract which is the largest operation and maintenance contract awarded to FLSmidth up until now includes supply of spare parts and consumables, development of a full operation and maintenance organisation, knowledge transfer to local employees and implementation of industry best practice.
