Indian cement producer, Sanghi Cement, is to expand its capacity from almost double its cement production capacity, according to a recent release to the Bombay Stock Exchange. The company will also significantly expand its existing captive power capacity.
Under the plants, Sanghi will increase its clinker production capacity at its cement plants in Kutch to 6.6 million tpy. The additional clinker production will feed 4 million tpy of new cement grinding capacity, taking the company’s cement production capacity to 8.1 million tpy.
The new grinding capacity will be split equally between the plant at Kutch and a new stand-alone grinding plant in Surat.
The estimated cost of the project is INR12.5 billion. Key equipment will be supplied by FLSmidth and Loesche. FLSmidth is to provide a 10 000 tpd pyroprocessing line for clinker production, while Loesche will provide the raw mills and coal mills for the clinker line. Supply of the grinding mills remains under negotiation.
Sanghi will increase its captive power generation capacity from 76 MW to 144 MW through the addition of a 68 MW thermal plant. Hangzhou Steam Turbine Co. will supply the new power plant.
