FLSmidth to set up new roller mill in East Africa

FLSmidth has signed a contract with Prime Cement Ltd for engineering, procurement and supply of equipment for a full-scope cement grinding plant with a capacity of 700,000 tonnes per year. The plant will be located in Musanze, Rwanda.

The contract will become effective when FLSmidth receives a down-payment from the customer, which is expected to happen later in 2017.

This is a milestone project for FLSmidth, being the first OK(TM) vertical roller mill to be supplied in East Africa and the first full scope grinding plant in Rwanda.

The contract includes a complete range of equipment from storages to packing and cement loading. FLSmidth will also supply equipment from other FLSmidth brands, such as a planetary mill gear unit from FLSmidth MAAG® Gear, filters from FLSmidth Airtech, a control system and plant automation from FLSmidth Automation, a packing plant from FLSmidth Ventomatic® and weighing and metering systems from FLSmidth Pfister®.

"This is the latest project to underline FLSmidth's strength as the leading supplier of the most productive and energy-efficient equipment and technology available in the market - and it is confirmed by Prime Cement's order for its grinding facility in Rwanda," said Per Mejnert Kristensen, Group Executive Vice President, Cement Division.
