JSW Cement increases Dolvi plant capacity to 2.2 MTPA

 

MUMBAI, Feb 11: Sajjan Jindal-led JSW Cement Monday said the cement production capacity at its Dolvi plant in Maharashtra has enhanced to 2.2 million tonne per annum(MTPA).

With this expansion from one MTPA to 2.2 MTPA, the

current installed capacity of the company has increased to

12.6 MTPA, JSW Cement said in a statement issued here.

“Our Dolvi cement unit is located closest to our

customers in Maharashtra thereby ensuring that all their

requirements are serviced quickly and with the freshest

quality cement. It enables us to become an integral part of

state’s infrastructure growth story,” JSW Cement managing

director Parth Jindal said.

This expansion along with other capacity enhancement

work already underway at various location across the country

will take the installed capacity of JSW Cement as a whole to

14 MTPA by April this year, he said.

“The completion of our capacity enhancement programme

at Dolvi brings us closer to achieving our overall company

target of 20 MTPA by December 2020. We will achieve this

capacity target through a combination of brownfield and

greenfield projects. We are also evaluating various inorganic

opportunities to further ramp up our capacity growth,” Jindal

added.

The Dolvi facility produces portland slag cement

(PSC), concreel HD and ground granulated blast furnace slag

(GGBS).

“All these products put the Dolvi unit of JSW Cement

at a considered advantage to cater to the green cement

requirements of Maharashtra and several neighbouring markets,”

the company said. (PTI)
