Eurocement’s Sengileevskaya plant has begun sending cement by barge. The company sent its first batch of 1700 t of cement at the end of August to a distribution centre in Cheboksary (Chivash Republic). Eurocement plans to make more of this means of transport and increase its water transport from 250 000 tpy to 500 000 tpy.

The Sengileevskaya plant is situated on the banks of the Volga River, making it easy to transport cement to the Ulyanovsk region and surrounding areas, as well as further afield. Shipping by barge is relatively low cost, which will help stabilise cement prices.
