Lagan Cement, Ireland, has won a contract to supply the Spanish market with 50 000 t of CEM I 42.5r cement. The cement is to be shipped via a 4500 t importation facility at La Coruña port, northern Spain. A local operator will use the cement supplied by Lagan on several contracts, including infrastructure projects relating to the high-speed rail system.
The latest figures from Spanish cement association Oficemen indicate that cement consumption fell by 9.1% y/y in September 2013, while production levels declined by 9.2% y/y.
Lagan Cement points out in its news release that, ‘Exporting this product is vitally important to the sustainability of the business as the Irish domestic economy continues to make its recovery from recession’.
