FLSmidth signs contract to deliver sustainable equipment
for greenfield project in India
New greenfield contract from Indian Cement producer Shree Cement sees FLSmidth deliver a series of sustainable equipment, including one of the world’s largest Cross-Bar Coolers, the FLSmidth OK Cement mill and Jetflex Burner.
Shree Cement Limited is one of India’s top three cement producers with an installed capacity of 47.4 Mt/a across India and the Middle East. The new line will be located near Nawalgarh in Rajasthan, 250 km southwest of the nation’s capital, New Delhi. The project encompasses a 11500 t/d pyro system, including a six-stage preheater and a three-support kiln.
An increased demand for sustainable productivity and emissions control is reflected in the contract scope, which includes Shree’s first OK Cement mill, boasting around five to ten percent less power consumption compared with other cement VRMs in the market. Likewise, the Jetflex Burner offers the lowest NOx emissions for various fuel types.
The benefits enabled by the OK Cement mill and Jetflex Burner, such as reduced energy consumption, reduced CO2 emissions and opportunities for alternative fuels, make these solutions flagships in FLSmidth’s MissionZero programme in cement. MissionZero is the sustain-ability ambition to enable cement producers to run productions at zero emissions by 2030.
The full contract will include an additional OK Cement mill for a split grinding unit at Shree Cements’ site in the West Bengal region, near Kolkata City. The contract valued around DKK 200 million was signed at a ceremony in India earlier this week. Upon receipt of the down payment, the contract will become effective and booked as order intake.
