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
The Dolvi facility produces portland slag cement
(PSC), concreel HD and ground granulated blast furnace slag
“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)
