India Cements begins groundwork on brownfield expansion plans

26 Oct 2012

India Cements has begun with the documentation work on a brownfield expansion to add over three million tonnes at two of its cement plants in Tamil Nadu. It aims to get clearances in place, as these are long-term plans for the company. The brownfield expansions are at Dalavoi, where a 40 MW coal-based captive power plant is also planned, and at Sankaridurg.

The company plans to add a new line that will add over 2.55 million tonnes to the existing 2.16 million tonne annual capacity at Dalavoi, in Ariyalur district of Tamil Nadu. This will take the total capacity at the plant to 4.71 million tonnes. A 2x20 MW captive power plant will also be set up to fully meet the power requirement. A similar exercise is also on at Sankaridurg, though on a smaller scale.
