BASIC DATA FACTS

  • The plant was executed under Supervision of the Prospective Engineering Gestion (PEG) of Geneva, Switzerland, and the cement machinery was supplied by M/s. Krupp Polysius of Germany supported by ABB Switzerland in the electrical and control systems.
  • Foundation stone was placed on February 3rd, 1982 the first Kiln was lighted up on the October 4th, 1984 with first Clinker rolling out of the Kiln on the October 06th, 1984. However, the commercial production started on January 01st, 1985.
  • Clinker designed capacity is 3,300,000 tons per year @ 10,500 tons per day. 
  • Cement designed capacity is 3,500,000 tons per year @ 12,000 tons per day.
  • When crushing is finished, grinding is achieved by two closed circuit mills with production capacity of 400 tons/hour and one roller mill with 330 tons/hour. 
  • Clinker is burned in three gas kilns to produce 3500 tons per day by each.
  • Clinker is cooled and transferred to five Silos; the total storing capacity is 230,000 tons.
  • Cement is ground by four cement mills of 12,000 tons/day capacities and stored in five Silos. Cement is dispatched in bulk bags and in jumbo bags. Bulk cement can be loaded directly from the cement Silos to cement bulkers. Bagging, loading and stacking are done by automatic machines, enabling the dispatching faster and economical.
  • The factory is considered one of the most modern, equipped with gas fired kilns (as being operated now) and could be operated as well as with diesel oil. 
  • The Plant has the most modern Control systems for high quality and efficient production.
  • Many modernization projects are under way for the efficient production and high quality product to meet various international standards.
