Rwanda: Prime Cement has signed a deal with Denmark’s FLSmidth to build a US$65m cement grinding plant in Musanze District, Northern Province. Gisele Bayigamba, the general manager of Milbridge Holding, a consortium that owns Prime Cement, said that construction of the unit will start in the third quarter of 2018, according to the New Times newspaper. The plant will have a cement production capacity of 0.7Mt/yr once operational. The project is also expected to create over 1500 jobs. A proposed second phase to the project will add an integrated clinker plant within the next five years.

FlSmidth added that the contract will become effective when FLSmidth receives a down payment from the customer, which is expected to happen later in 2017. The order includes a OK(TM) 27-4 vertical mill for cement grinding, filters, a control system and plant automation, a packing plant and weighing and metering systems. FLSmidth will also supply equipment from other FLSmidth brands, such as a planetary mill gear unit from FLSmidth MAAG Gear, filters from FLSmidth Airtech, a control system and plant automation from FLSmidth Automation, a packing plant from FLSmidth Ventomatic and weighing and metering systems from FLSmidth Pfister.
