FLSmidth, together with Société Générale des Travaux du Maroc, has signed a contract with TEKCIM SA to co-deliver a full cement plant with a capacity of 3600 tpd.
The plant will be built in Ouled Ghanem in El-Jadida province, Morocco. It is scheduled to be fully operation in 3Q22. FLSmidth’s share of the turnkey contract amounts to DKK335 million.
This is the first business cooperation between FLSmidth and TEKCIM. The process leading to the agreement has involved the African Development Bank, as well as local commercial banks, and the parties involved have set high standards in terms of quality and sustainability.
The contract scope includes engineering, supply of a full range of equipment from crushing to packing and loadout, supervision, commissioning, and training of a local workforce.
“The project includes state-of-the-art equipment that will provide TEKCIM with a very different cement plant,” said Jan Kjaersgaard, President of Cement at FLSmidth. “It also demonstrates FLSmidth’s ability to support customers where financing is involved, which has been a key aspect in being awarded this project.
The plant will fulfil strict international standards, which is a clear statement that we are following suit on our agenda of delivering sustainable productivity.”
