FLSmidth has signed an EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) contract with one of the world’s largest cement producers CEMEX for the supply of a new cement production line to be installed at CEMEX’s Odessa cement plant. The plant is located in western Texas, USA. Once the installation is finished, the cement production line is expected to have a capacity of approximately 2540 metric tonnes per day.
The expansion will utilize state-of-the-art production technology resulting in higher fuel efficiency and improved productivity. The equipment scope includes a 5-stage ILC preheater with a Low NOx Calciner, 3-pier kiln, FLSmidth Cross-Bar® cooler, Duoflex® burner, Pfister weighing and dosing systems, gas analyzers and three Fuller-Kinyon® pumps. Furthermore, an FLSmidth control system will ensure the most efficient operation.
The order will be booked by the Cement Division and contribute beneficially to FLSmidth’s earnings until late 2016.
