A delegation from CATIC Beijing Company Ltd, China, recently visited Cemento Andino’s Las Llanadas cement plant in Trujillo, Venezuela. The CATIC delegation inspected the site in light of plans to construct a new production line at the plant, sharing technical knowledge with Cemento Andino’s engineering team. With an estimated investment of around US$239 million, the expansion will increase the plant’s production capacity from 600 000 tpa to 1.8 million tpa.
CATIC has also been contracted to execute a new cement plant for Cemento Andino in Los Arangues, Lara. The plant is expected to produce around 1.2 million tpa. The projects form part of a strategic cooperation agreement between Venezuela and China.
