Delivering sustainable equipment for greenfield project in India
Due to an increased demand for sustainable productivity and emissions control, Indian Cement producer Shree Cement has signed a greenfield contract with FLSmidth to deliver a series of sustainable equipment, inclyding the world’s largest Cross-bar Cooler, the FLSmidth OK Cement Mill and the JETFLEX Burner.
Shree Cement Limited is one of India’s top three cement producers with an installed capacity of 47.4 mtpy across India and the Middle East. The new line will be located near Nawalgarh in Rajasthan, 250 km southwest of the nation’s capital, New Delhi. The project encompasses a 11,500 tpd pyro system, including a six-stage preheater and a three-support kiln.
“It is great to further strengthen the collaboration with Shree Cement, not only on growing their business, but doing it in a sustainable way. The new line in Rajasthan will include a state-of-the-art pyro system and grinding sections – both part of our MissionZero offerings. With this, Shree Cement makes a significant investment in future-proofing its sustainable production,” says Carsten Riisberg Lund, Cement Industry President, FLSmidth.
The benefits enabled by the OK Cement mill and JETFLEX Burner, such as reduced energy consumption, reduced CO2 emissions and opportunities for alternative fuels, make these solutions flagships in FLSmidth’s MissionZero programme in Cement. MissionZero is the sustainability ambition to enable cement producers to run productions at zero emissions by 2030.
The full contract will include an additional OK Cement mill for a split grinding unit at Shree Cements’ site in the West Bengal region, near Kolkata City.
