:: F.L.Smidth Wins New Contract in Iran

The privately owned Faraz Firouzkuh Cement Company (FFCC) has placed an order with F.L.Smidth A/S for machinery and equipment for a greenfield cement plant with a capacity of 3,300 tonnes cement clinker per day. The contract is worth EUR 23m, or just over DKK 170m.

The order from FFCC, a newly established Iranian- and European-owned cement business in Iran, follows in the wake of a EUR 70m, or DKK 520m, contract landed by F.L.Smidth from another Iranian company. Co-owned by Breitenburger Auslandbeteiligung GmbH, which is partly owned by Holcim, FFCC is among the first cement companies in Iran partly owned by foreign interests.

FFCC's new cement facility will be set up near the city of Firouzkuh, 125 km east of the capital of Tehran. The machinery and equipment will be shipped during the next 15 months. The plant is scheduled to come on stream in the autumn of 2006.

The scope of the contract includes a complete pyroprocessing system consisting of preheater, kiln and cooler, a clinker conveying system and a cement mill with MAAG gearbox as well as a complete control system to be supplied by F.L.Smidth Automation, two electrostatic precipitators to be supplied by F.L.Smidth Airtech and a hammer crusher, circular storage and raw meal silos to be provided by F.L.Smidth Materials Handling. Also included in the contract is supervision of erection.
