New greenfield contract from Indian Cement producer Shree Cement sees FLSmidth deliver a series of sustainable equipment, including the world’s largest Cross-Bar® Cooler, the FLSmidth OKTM Cement mill and JETFLEX® Burner.
Shree Cement Limited is one of India's top three cement producers with an installed capacity of 47.4 mtpy across India and the Middle East. The new line will be located near Nawalgarh in Rajasthan, 250 km southwest of the nation’s capital, New Delhi. The project encompasses a 11,500 tpd pyro system, including a six-stage preheater and a three-support kiln.
The contract includes Shree Cement’s first OK Cement mill, boasting around five to ten percent less power consumption compared with other cement VRMs in the market according to FLSmidth. Likewise, the JETFLEX® Burner offers the lowest NOx emissions for various fuel types.
“It is great to further strengthen the collaboration with Shree Cement, not only on growing their business, but doing it in a sustainable way. The new line in Rajasthan will include a state-of-the-art pyro system and grinding sections – both part of our MissionZero offerings. With this, Shree Cement makes a significant investment in future-proofing its sustainable production,” said Carsten Riisberg Lund, Cement Industry President, FLSmidth. “We are also proud to announce that the new Cross-Bar® Cooler at Nawalgarh will be the world’s largest – a truly great achievement for the team,” he adds.
“Based on the experience of working with FLSmidth on the installation of a 9,000 tpd pyro system at Raipur earlier this year, we felt confident about approaching Carsten Riisberg Lund and his team regarding the Rajasthan project,” said Mr. Prashant Bangur, Joint Managing Director of Shree Cement.
The full contract will include an additional OK Cement mill for a split grinding unit at Shree Cements’ site in the West Bengal region, near Kolkata City.
The contract valued around DKK 200m was signed at a ceremony in India earlier this week. Upon receipt of down payment, the contract will become effective and booked as order intake.
