FLSmidth has received an order worth approximately DKK100m from Anrak Aluminium India for a gas suspension calcination system. The equipment is for Anrak’s 1.5 million tonnes per year alumina refinery project located 65km from the city of Visakhapatnam in the east Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.
The contract includes design, engineering and supervision for the entire equipment package. The scope of supply comprises a gas suspension calciner, hydrate storage and reclaiming equipment, pan filters, baghouse filters, a pipe conveyor and a material handling system for two 25,000t silos.
This is yet another large order from the alumina industry and the fourth contract FLSmidth has received in India for a gas suspension calcination system over the past four years.
FLSmidth’s project centre in India is responsible for the preliminary engineering work and for the coordination and execution of the order. The Indian project centre has assembled a global FLSmidth team with the best technology available to provide a “one source, one partner” solution for Anrak Aluminium.
“Coming close on the heels of the Utkal Alumina project orders, this contract from Anrak Aluminium confirms FLSmidth’s leading position in the supply of technology and equipment for the alumina industries,” Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen says.
