FLSmidth wins cement plant order in Uruguay

Cielo Azul Cementos y Calizas has awarded FLSmidth an order for the engineering, procurement and supply of equipment for an energy-efficient cement plant in Uruguay.

The plant will be located near the city of Treinta y Tres, around 300 km from the capital of Uruguay, Montevideo.

The order, worth over $30m, consists of a range of equipment from crushing to packing and a palletizing system.

FLSmidth will deliver 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.

Cielo Azul is an established player in the ready mix concrete business – the new plant marks Cielo Azul’s entry into the cement production business.

Per Mejnert Kristensen, group executive vice president, cement division, said: “We are proud that Cielo Azul has chosen FLSmidth as their partner as they enter the world of cement production. FLSmidth has a 135-year proven track record of understanding and sharing our customers’ ambitions. We develop the most advanced technology in our industries and offer market-leading product and service ranges. Together with Cielo Azul, we will leverage on our knowledge and experience to deliver the most energy-efficient cement plant in Uruguay.”

The order is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
