FLSmidth: Process and quality optimisation order from the CRH Group based in Dublin, Ireland

-FLSmidth has been awarded a contract for process and quality optimisation of
17 cement plants recently acquired by the CRH Group, based in Dublin, Ireland
using FLSmidth's ECS/ProcessExpert®and QCX/BlendExpert(TM) products.

FLSmidth's ECS/ProcessExpert system stabilises the process of the plant,
optimises the production, manages and corrects process disruptions and
minimises wear on plant equipment - all to ensure optimum plant performance.
By improving equipment availability and utilisation, the system helps reduce
operational and maintenance costs. FLSmidth's QCX/BlendExpert(TM) system
controls the proportioning of raw material feed to raw mills to obtain the
desired chemical product quality with respect to chemical constraints,
process constraints and material costs.

The order is the largest advanced process optimisation project awarded to
FLSmidth and includes process optimisation of 12 kilns and 40 grinding mills,
as well as quality optimisation of 14 raw mills. In addition, the order
includes a service agreement, covering all 66 applications, where FLSmidth
will provide 24/7 support and ongoing remote monitoring and optimisation by
its process specialists.

CRH is the third largest building materials supplier in the world and has more
than doubled its cement production volume due to the recent acquisition of 34
plants (incl. grinding stations), divested as part of the Lafarge/Holcim
merger last year. Many of the plants are already using optimisation systems,
but CRH chose to standardise on FLSmidth's ECS/ProcessExpert and
QCX/BlendExpert solutions.

CRH chose FLSmidth's solution due to FLSmidth's process knowledge and
technologically superior solutions, as well as FLSmidth's ability to deliver
the large number of systems within 14 months.

FLSmidth is a leading supplier of automation technologies for the cement and
minerals industries. For more than 40 years, FLSmidth has been pioneering
advanced process control systems using the latest technologies combined with
FLSmidth's extensive process knowledge. FLSmidth's well-proven methods ensure
successful implementation and complete lifecycle management of the solution.
