A super-plant for the production of cement with the capacity of 1.3 million tons a year will be put into operation on July 15th in the Ulianovsk region.
As the regional press-service reports, a new enterprise “Eurocement Group” was built in Sengiley district. Minister of Construction, Housing and Utilities Mikhail Menn and Minister of Trade and Industry Denis Manturov are expected at the opening ceremony. The new plant is erected in the place of the old cement factory, built in 1913.
Investments volume for the construction site reached 16 billion rubles. The capacity of the new plant in Sengiley will make 1.3 million tons of cement a year. It will make it possible to increase the total volume of cement production in the region up to 4 million tons. 500 jobs will be created at the plant and 1,000 in allied sectors.
The plant will work in “dry” mode: before grinding raw materials will be dried up. This method is considered environmentally friendlier and will save energy resources two-fold.
