FLSmidth has been awarded an order from Cielo Azul Cementos y Calizas S.A. for engineering, procurement and supply of equipment for a complete cement plant. The plant will be located near the city of Treinta y Tres, approximately 300 km from the capital of Uruguay, Montevideo.
The order comprises a complete range of equipment from crushing to packing and a palletizing system. FLSmidth will deliver state-of-the-art energy-efficient technology including vertical roller mills for raw, coal and cement grinding, FLSmidth Cross-Bar cooler, and a low-NOx in-line-calciner kiln system. The total order size will be more than US$ 30 million.
The client, Cielo Azul, is an established player in the Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) business in which concrete is delivered directly to the end user. The new cement plant marks Cielo Azul’s entry into the cement production business.
The order will be fully executed by the end of 2018.
