The Mugher cement plant in Ethiopia has successfully converted from heavy fuel oil to coal, according to a company statement. The completion of the conversion project was celebrated on 9 January 2017.

“The replacement was crucial to increase quality, reduce production delay and supply energy on a regular basis,” said Fekadu Deme, Director General of Ethiopia’s Ministry of Public Enterprise, at the inauguration event.

Deme added that the plant would now target daily clinker production of 5000 t.

Converting from imported heavy fuel to domestically-supplied coal will also help reduce the cost of production, said Project Manager Engineer, Mehari Alemu.

The company also celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Addis Ababa cement plant and 25th anniversary of the Mugher Line II cement production plant.
