FL Sidth has received an order worth approximately $110m from the Vietnamese cement producer Xuan Than Group for the supply of a complete cement plant with a capacity of 12,000 tonnes per day.
The plant is 100km south of Hanoi, Vietnam.
Once completed, the plant will be the largest cement plant in South East Asia with the most energy efficient equipment, state-of-the-art emission control and leading process control systems.
“The Vietnamese cement market is expected to grow over the coming years and it is a well-known market to FL Smidth as we have been present in the country for many years – also the construction of the largest cement plant in South East Asia proves our strong position in the area,” president of the Cement Division Per Mejnert Kristensen said.
The order will be booked by the Cement Division and contribute beneficially to FL Smidth`s earnings until mid 2017.
