Kriegner highlighted that the company's upcoming facility in Marwar Mundwa, Rajasthan will enhance clinker capacity by 3 MTPA and help improve cement sales by 5 MTPA, thereby contributing to the long term strategy of capacity expansion. This Greenfield integrated plant, at a total investment of Rs. 2350 crores, will commence operations by Q3 2021.
"We are very proud to state that this will be a “green plant” with Waste Heat Recovery system and other renewable energy installations," Kriegner said to the shareholders.
