February 27, 2018 Hubert Suinat

FLSmidth builds greenfield cement plant in Relizane for ETHRB Group.

The new plant is located in the Relizane province in the North of Algeria.

It is now official: FLSmidth is to deliver a complete state-of-the-art cement plant for ETHRB Group located in Relizane, Algeria. The order includes engineering, equipment supply, construction supervision, commissioning, and training.

The order is in part a result of the partnership between FLSmidth and Beijing Triumph International Engineering Company, a company under the China National Building Material Group Corporation (CNBM Group), which will be responsible for the construction of the cement plant.

The plant will mainly supply cement to the North African market. Once completed, the cement plant will have a capacity of 12,000 tonnes per day.

“This order underlines FLSmidth's strength as the leading supplier of the most productivity-enhancing solutions and energy-efficient equipment and technology available in the market today. It marks the culmination of a close collaboration between the customer and FLSmidth and demonstrates our ability to work with contractors from anywhere in the world based on our experience and competencies from the cement industry, our global presence, and the know-how of our 12,000 employees," - Per Mejnert Kristensen, Group Executive Vice President, Cement Division.
