Augmenting Capacities in Strategic Locations

Our capacity expansion projects at strategic locations reiterate our ability to identify right opportunities while harnessing our strong capabilities. They are aligned to our vision of becoming a geographically diversified entity to ensure sustainable progress and value creation for all our stakeholders.

We are strategically creating new grinding and clinkerisation capacities at a total cost of ₹ 3,500 Crores to tap the growth potential in the eastern region and establish ourselves as a major player. During FY 2019-20, we successfully commissioned 1.05 MTPA grinding capacity each in our existing Kolaghat and Vizag Grinding Units. Our greenfield 1 MTPA grinding unit at Haridaspur, Jajpur district, Odisha along with railway siding and wagon tippler is ongoing.

We are also creating clinkering capacities to serve the needs of the grinding units. We are establishing Line III at our existing Jayanthipuram Plant. It will have clinkerisation capacity of 1.5 MTPA and 27 MW WHRS. A greenfield cement plant is being set-up at Kalavatala, Kolimigundla Mandal, Andhra Pradesh. It will have clinkerisation capacity of     2.25 MTPA, cement manufacturing capacity of 1 MTPA, 12.15 MW WHRS, 18 MW Thermal power plant and a railway siding. Both the projects are expected to be commissioned in the last quarter of FY 2020-21.

How these new projects will benefit

Establish new market
In the coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh and in Odisha, Jharkhand and West Bengal.
Strengthen in-house clinker availability
The additional clinkers produced at new units would meet the requirements of the grinding units.
Reduce carbon footprint
With installation of 39.15 MW of waste heat recovery system.
Efficient supply chain and servicing
Proximity of grinding units to target markets will ensure supply chain efficiency and better servicing.
