Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No.
01-2013,11 January 2013

FLSmidth has won a contract worth approximately USD 112m (DKK 658m) from Vale,
its long-term Brazilian customer, to supply Material Handling and Mineral
Processing equipment for Vale's Moatize coal mine in the Tete Province of

The material handling equipment to be supplied includes a crushing plant as
well as in-plant and stockyard conveyors. The crushing plant consists of a tip
bin, feeders, primary, secondary and tertiary sizers as well as supporting
steel structures and auxiliaries. The process equipment includes FLSmidth
Ludowici reflux classifiers and horizontal belt filters.

Included in the supply is a complete conveyor system with all mechanical and
structural components, transfer towers, silos, chutes, magnets, belt scales,
lubrication system, skirts and support. The system has been designed using the
latest design methods including DEM (Discrete ElementModelling), which will
ensure optimum flow of the coal. Safety of operation and construction as well
as energy efficiency are key issues in the system design. 

The contract includes design, detailing, fabrication, supply, delivery to
site, supervision of erection and commissioning together with start-up
assistance. In accordance with FLSmidth's One Source strategy, full life cycle
support will be supplied from the FLSmidth service centre in Tete, Mozambique.

FLSmidth has previously delivered a crushing plant and filters for the first
phase of the Moatize mine along with a contract for supply of equipment for
Vale's Nacala Port expansion. This second phase of the project will enable
Vale to approximately double the production capacity at the mine.

"The coal industry is one of FLSmidth's six focus industries, and now with the
recent acquisition of Ludowici FLSmidth offers a complete range of equipment
for this industry - a decisive factor for this order. Furthermore, this
contract demonstrates the continued good relationship between the major global
coal and iron ore producer Vale and FLSmidth, and it is an important step for
FLSmidth towards the planned global market leadership in coal," Group CEO
Jørgen Huno Rasmussen comments.

The order will be booked by the Material Handling division and contribute
beneficially to FLSmidth's earnings until end of 2014.
