Vietnam: FLSmidth has received a US$109m order from the Vietnamese cement producer Xuan Than Group for the supply of a complete 12,000t/day capacity cement plant. The plant will be located approximately 100km south of Hanoi. Once completed, the plant will be the largest cement plant in Southeast Asia with the most energy-efficient equipment, state-of-the-art emissions control systems.
"The Vietnamese cement market is expected to grow over the coming years and it is a well-known market to FLSmidth as we have been present in the country for many years. The construction of the largest cement plant in Southeast Asia proves our strong position in the area," said president of the cement division, Per Mejnert Kristensen. The order will be booked by the cement division and contribute beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until mid 2017.
