New cement capacities in Central India

HeidelbergCement has successfully completed the expansion of its clinker and cement grinding plants in Central India. The plants are located in Narsingarh and Imlai (Madhya Pradesh) and in Jhansi (Uttar Pradesh). Capital expenditure for the project amounted to 216 million €. With the expansion, annual clinker production capacity of the Narsingarh production site rose from 1.2 to 3.1 million t. An around 20 km long overland belt conveyor, which is one of the longest in India, has been built for the limestone transport from the quarry to Narsingarh. The annual cement grinding capacity of the Imlai plant was increased from 1 to 2 million t and of the Jhansi plant from 0.8 to 2.7 million t. Clinker for both cement grinding plants is supplied by the Narsingarh unit. With the expansion of the plants, HeidelbergCement´s annual cement production capacity in India rose from 3.1 to 6 million t.
