FLSmidth will deliver a full pyro line, including a series of sustainable flagship solutions, to Peruvian cement producer Cementos Pacasmayo for its Pacasmayo plant.
The new pyro line will increase clinker production capacity by approximately 600,000 tonnes per year. Replacing current equipment, the project reinforces Pacasmayo’s environmental sustainability strategy. Apart from the main pyro line, the order from FLSmidth also includes equipment for dosing and feeding and automation of process controls.
“We are very excited to work with Cementos Pacasmayo on this project – not only on growing the business, but doing it in a sustainable way. The new line will be equipped with a state-of-the-art pyro system including several of our MissionZero solutions. With this, Pacasmayo makes a significant investment in future-proofing its production,” said Anders Josefsen, FLSmidth’s SVP and head of projects and upgrades.
“The Pacasmayo project is a prime example of our capabilities within process design – ensuring the integration to an existing plant, while also demonstrating our ability to deliver equipment that meets demands for energy and fuel efficiency,” he said.
“Investing in an additional pyro line from FLSmidth’s MissionZero program is a fundamental step towards accomplishing our upgrade strategy for our Pacasmayo plant, approved by our October 22, 2021 board of directors meeting, and enable us to better serve our customers, now and in the future. But just as importantly, we will serve them using the most efficient equipment available on the market,” added Humberto Nadal, CEO of Cementos Pacasmayo.
“FLSmidth has shown excellent process knowledge – thanks to the team’s experience from similar projects around the world, and access to specialists and test facilities at their service center in Arequipa, we have great confidence that we will achieve our targets,” Nadal concluded.
FLSmidth said the contract became effective and booked as order intake in the fourth quarter of 2021.
