Pakistan’s largest cement producer – Lucky Cement is expanding capacities in Pakistan and Iraq.
Its brownfield Pezu cement plant in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) Province of Pakistan will be expanding production. Lucky Cement has signed a contract with M/s Tianjin Cement Industry Design & Research Institute, China for the supply of the new state of the art plant to increase the clinker production at Pezu Plant. The newly ordered facility will be installed and functional in the last quarter of 2019 with a production capacity of 2.6 million tons per annum.
To be built at PKR 17.5 billion, Lucky Cement has already secured the approvals and NOC from the KPK Government.
The cement major is also commissioning a 1.2 million ton per year greenfield clinker production plant in Samawah, Iraq. Lucky Cement aims to become self-reliant in clinker availability with this new pant that is planned as a joint venture project with the existing local partner. The cement plant in Iraq will cost US$ 109 million and is expected to commence commercial production from the fourth quarter of 2019.
More about cement production and expansion in Asia will be discussed at CMT’s 20th Asia CemenTrade Summit on 13-14 November, 2018 in Bangkok.
