New Projects

From the Americas to Morocco to Saudi Arabia, here’s just a sampling of the exciting new projects awarded to FLSmidth this year.

New crushers and mills in Mexico

The equipment to be supplied includes a gyratory crusher, cone crusher, semi-autogenous mill, and a ball mill. All are expected to be completed by 2015. These orders are a continuation of a growing relationship, reinforced by our customer’s belief and confidence in the equipment FLSmidth previously supplied to Peña that included SAG mills and thickeners. As we progress with this project, there is potential for additional equipment and spares orders.

FLSmidth’s Zacatecas service facilities in North Central Mexico were opened last year as a way of being closer to Mexican customers with accessible parts warehousing and quicker service availability. The service center will be very beneficial to the project, being located only 600 kilometers from the Peña mine site.

OCP orders material handling equipment

This is a great project for FLSmidth as we have decades of experience with material handling equipment and carry the strong and recognized brand names of Koch® and MVT®. The equipment includes three (3) bucket wheel reclaimers, each with a capacity of 2,000 tonnes per hour; two (2) stackers with a capacity of 2,000 tonnes per hour; two (2) stackers with a capacity of 1,000 tonnes per hour; and associated yard conveyors. FLSmidth will also be supervising the erection and taking care of the commissioning.

In May 2015, GASAN Investment & Industrial Development Ltd. of Saudi Arabia agreed to the purchase of FLSmidth pyrometallurgical equipment for a calcined petroleum coke plant to be located in Al Sharquiyah, Saudi Arabia.

The order covers supply of engineering, procurement and services for two production lines, including kilns, coolers and incinerators. Each line will have a planned capacity of 330,000 tonnes per annum.

Air pollution control systems for Iron Ore

In July 2015, FLSmidth was awarded an additional contract with Essar Steel to supply the complete air pollution control system for its greenfield iron ore pelletizing plant located in Nashwauk, 100 miles northwest of Duluth in Minnesota, USA.

Previous orders included complete system engineering and supply of key-parts and fabricated steel. The air pollution control system will be installed at the end of the production process to minimize the environmental impact and prevent the harmful pollutants from the production of taconite pellets from passing into the atmosphere. The whole project comprises of Gas Suspension Absorbers (FLS-GSA®), cyclones, fabric filters, flue-gas ducting, and related dust transportation equipment.
