Denmark: FLSmidth’s revenue for its cement division has risen by 10% year–on-year to Euro576m in 2016 from Euro526m in 2015. Its order intake rose by 63% to Euro615m from Euro377m. The equipment manufacture said that orders had picked up in the second half of 2016. Although it added that the market for new cement capacity remains largely unchanged with supply outweighing demand on a global level. Overall, both order intake and revenue declined for the company as a whole in 2016.
"After a weak first half, activity picked up, finishing the year on a strong note. Rising commodity prices positively impacted sentiment in the mining industry in 2016, although it has yet to translate into higher capital investments. The cement industry is showing early signs of recovery," said Group chief executive officer Thomas Schulz.

India: Aumund India has been awarded orders for 17 bucket elevators, eight silo discharge systems and one pan conveyor in connection to orders FLSmidth has received from Tamilnadu Cement, Akij Cement and Shah Cement.
Aumund India will deliver one type BW-ZL bucket elevator, one type BWG belt bucket elevator and three type BWG-GK belt bucket elevators instead of the conventional Aumund type BWZ bucket elevator for the Akij Cement project. For the Tamilnadu Cement project FLSmidth had specific design criteria and wanted a certain safety factor for the chain. So Aumund India provided an optimised solution, which met these specific criteria. It will deliver two type BW-ZL bucket elevators, eight type BWG bucket elevators, eight type SDI silo discharge systems and one type KZB deep drawn pan conveyor. For the Shah Cement project Aumund India will deliver two type BWZ bucket elevators.
Denmark: FLSmidth’s has grown its services activities slightly to Euro997m in the first nine months of 2016. Other than this revenue, profit and order intake have all fallen. Revenue has dropped by 12% year-on-year to Euro1.7bn, profit by 15% to Euro45.7m and order intake by 7% to Euro1.85bn. The engineering company has said it will take corrective actions through site closures, reducing management, optimising its supply chain and making procurement savings.
"The market for new cement capacity continues to be characterised by pricing pressure. That said, the pipeline of potential projects is encouraging, and current tendering activity gives reason to be cautiously optimistic about the mid-term outlook," said Group CEO Thomas Schulz.
Iraq: FLSmidth has signed a contract worth more than US$200m with Iraq Cement Co. to build a 6000t/day production line in the Al Muthana region. The contract is a full engineering, procurement and construction order, comprising engineering, all FLSmidth equipment supplies, erection and construction, as well as commissioning and training once completed.
"By signing the contract, Iraq Cement Co. is making the first step in raising financing for the project, which is an important milestone in its pursuit to realise the project. We are pleased to have been selected to support it on that journey. FLSmidth has a long history in Iraq and the Middle East and is maintaining its leading role in serving the rapidly-expanding cement market. The growing economy and increasing infrastructure investments in the region continue to offer business opportunities," said Group Executive Vice President of the Cement Division, Per Mejnert Kristensen.
China: FLSmidth, Sino Environment Engineering Development (SEPTEC) and China Resources Cement (CRC) have signed a partnership to provide pyroprocessing co-processing systems to cement plants. FLSmidth will be responsible for the design, engineering and integration of the integrated waste burning solution, with SEPETC acting as a general contractor.
The agreement follows a project at CRC's Hongshuihe cement plant that took municipal and industrial waste from the city of Binyang in Guangxi. FLSmidth installed a Hotdisc system that could process 300t/day of waste to support the cement plant’s cement production capacity of 3200t/day.
"China's energy intensive industries, such as cement production, are coming under pressure from the government that wants to rebalance the economy towards a less energy-hungry mode of growth, curb pollution and reduce carbon emissions. CRC plans to initiate several similar municipal solid waste co-processing projects for other cement producers with FLSmidth and SEPETC as partners," said FLSmidth China Country Manager, Cyril Leung.
In China's latest five-year plan, the government encourages more cement producers to co-process municipal solid waste in the cement industry, with an aim of getting 15 - 20% of the cement kilns in the country to be co-processing waste by 2020. In 2017, China will introduce a national carbon-trading scheme in 2017.
China: FLSmidth and Northern Heavy Industries Group (NHI Group), based in Shenyang, have signed an agreement to enter into a joint-venture, with an equal amount of shares, for the design and supply of mining equipment targeting the mid-market segment. The joint venture will be established with its own board of directors and management under the name NHI-Fuller (Shenyang) Mining (NHI-Fuller), which will financially report results as part of the Minerals Division in FLSmidth. Subject to obtaining regulatory approval, it is anticipated that NHI-Fuller will be operational in the first quarter of 2017.
"In 2014, we announced that part of our strategy in the Minerals Division was to enter the expanding mid-market for mining equipment. With the NHI Group, we have now found a perfect industrial partner for this quest," said Group Executive Vice President of the Minerals Division in FLSmidth, Manfred Schaffer.
The NHI-Fuller products will be designed for the needs of mid-market or capital expenditure sensitive customers in the mining industry and will be marketed under the NHI-Fuller brand name. While the initial focus will be to supply crushing products, the goal of the joint venture will be to become the leading mid-market mining equipment supplier for other product lines as well.
