Pakistan’s Flying Cement starting its new Line II

FlyingCement LineII

Flying Cement Limited is going to start its new cement production Line II in Mangwal, in the heart of the Punjab province in Pakistan. The new line comprises a 7700 tpd kiln with an ICL-preheater, a Cross-Bar-cooler and an OK 71-6 cement mill for 415 t/h of OPC. The plant contract had been awarded to FLSmidth in March 2019. Plant commissioning had been postponed from 2021 to 2024. The start-up of the 3.0 Mta cement line this year comes amidst low capacity utilisation of Pakistan’s cement industry. Probably the existing Line I will be closed, when Line II is operational. Line I has a capacity of 4000 tpd and had been supplied by Japanese IHI.
