         FLSmidth : FLSmidth to supply large material handling system

Company Announcement to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority No.
05-2013,3April 2013

FLSmidth has received an order worth approximately INR 1900m (approximately
DKK 200m) from a leading Indian steel producer, Tata Steel, to supply two pipe
conveyors for transport of 6 million tonnes per year of iron ore over a
distance of around 9 km from the steel company's Khondbond mines to the
railway loading point at Joda in the state of Odisha, located on the east
coast of India.

The scope of supply includes two pipe conveyors with a total conveying
capacity of 1,400 tonnes per hour. The pipe conveyors are 3,600 and 5,300
metres long, respectively, and will run through a challenging terrain and
forest land.

Over the past years, Tata Steel has increased its focus on safety and
corporate social responsibility with special attention to environmentally
friendly initiatives, and the company therefore chose FLSmidth's globally
proven pipe conveyor technology for this application. FLSmidth has previously
delivered an in-plant pipe conveyor to Tata Steel's Pellet plant application
at their Jamshedpur facility, confirming the advantages of the technology.

"FLSmidth's experience gained over the years through more than 300 pipe
conveyor installations operating worldwide along with continued research and
development has enabled FLSmidth to master the analysis and design of this
particular type of material transport system. An automation team designs
FLSmidth's proprietary state-of-the-art drive systems and control philosophy
for the material transport systems. Hence, FLSmidth is able to provide its
clients with pipe conveyor solutions which minimise the environmental impact
of the material transport to near zero, address noise pollution as required,
consume as little power as possible and reduce operation and maintenance
costs," Group CEO Jørgen Huno Rasmussen says.

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