Copenhagen, Denmark – On June 19, 2019, FLSmidth together with Société Générale des Travaux du Maroc (SGTM) signed a contract with TEKCIM S.A. to co-deliver a full cement plant with a capacity of 3600 tonnes per day. The plant will be built in Ouled Ghanem in Morocco’s El-Jadida province and is scheduled to be fully operational in the third quarter of 2022. FLSmidth’s share of the turnkey contract amounts to DKK 335 million (approx. USD 50 million).
This is the first business cooperation between FLSmidth and TEKCIM. The process leading to the agreement has involved the African Development Bank as well as local commercial banks, and the parties involved have set very high standards in terms of quality and sustainability.

It also demonstrates FLSmidth ability to support customers where financing is involved, which has been a key aspect to be awarded this project. The plant will fulfil strict international standards which is a clear statement that we as a premium player in the industry are following suit on our agenda of delivering sustainable productivity,” said Jan Kjaersgaard, President, Cement, FLSmidth.
