The president of EUROCEMENT group Mikhail Skorokhod paid a working visit to Uzbekistan and inspected the construction of a new cement plant at the site of the existing Akhangarantsement. He discussed the status of the project with the plant management and representatives of the contracting company.

“The construction site is reliably provided with supplies of materials and equipment, this guarantees a high level of quality of work and their completion on time. Considering the growing needs of the Uzbek market for construction materials, the EUROCEMENT group Holding is most attentive to the construction of a new plant and the creation of a cluster of building materials on its basis,” Mikhail Skorohod emphasized.

The launch of the plant in 2020, combined with the development of a cluster of building materials, will ensure the introduction of innovative technologies for the production of earthquake-resistant concrete products, refractories and other modern products for the growing construction complex in Uzbekistan. The total capacity of the new enterprise and the existing line will be 5 million tons of cement per year, and the cluster for the production of building materials based on Akhangarantsement will provide the market with a line of high-quality products for housing, industrial and infrastructure projects.

Upon completion of the main civil works, equipment for the production line is actively supplied to the site, more than 4.5 thousand tons have already been installed. The manufacturers of the main components and assemblies are leading European companies. In particular, the installation of the latest generation clinker refrigerator was completed, the clinker conveyor, electrical equipment are being installed in the active stage, internal work is being carried out in the heat exchanger, the construction of the raw materials warehouse is nearing completion. The most important role at all production stages of the enterprise is given to aspiration systems that comply with the best world standards to minimize environmental impact.

The project is being implemented as part of a memorandum of cooperation and an agreement on the construction of an industrial cluster of building materials between the EUROCEMENT group and the Uzpromstroymaterialy Association, which were signed in the presence of the heads of state and prime ministers of Russia and Uzbekistan. Investments in the implementation of the project amount to 200 million US dollars.
