Equatorial Guinea: FLSmidth has been awarded an order worth approximately Euro68m from Grupo Abayak AKOGA Cemento for the supply of a 3000t/day green field cement plant at Akoga in Equatorial Guinea. The contract includes supply of plant engineering and all main equipment, including jaw crusher, cone crusher, ATOX® raw mill, OK cement mill, pyroline with cross bar cooler, dosing systems, filters, packing plant and automation control system.
"Equatorial Guinea and the surrounding region have been relying on imported cement - thereby suffering from high prices and constraints. This plant will be serving the local market as well as neighbouring countries," said group executive vice president Per Mejnert Kristensen in a statement.
Grupo Abayak AKOGA Cemento is a newcomer to the cement industry but has been involved in multiple infrastructure projects in Equatorial Guinea. The order will be booked by the FLSmidth's cement division and contribute beneficially to the cement plant manufacturer's earnings until 2016.
