Oman Cement Company SAOG (OCC) has ordered on an EPC basis a complete closed circuit ball mill system from FLSmidth. The new equipment is for the expansion of OCC’s cement production facility in the Rusayl Industrial Area, 60 km from Port Sultan Qaboos in the capital city of Muscat.
Over the years OCC’s production facility has expanded from its original capacity of 600,000 tpy commissioned in 1983 to the present level of 2.4m tpy (2011). The company is now upgrading its production lines and wishes to set up a fifth grinding unit.

Environmental protection will be provided for by means of fabric filters that reduce dust emission.
FLSmidth has a strong presence in the countries affiliated with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). And having signed the recent contract, the company looks forward to continuing its good relationship with Oman Cement Company.
