JSW to double cement capacity by 2023
The ramp-up of cement production capacity will involve a combination of brownfield expansions at Salboni unit and Shiva Cement plants and a greenfield project in Odisha. These projects are expected to be commissioned in various phases until 2023, an official statement said.
JSW currently produces green cement at its Salboni unit in West Bengal to service the demand in the eastern region, where the current cement making capacity is about four million tonne per annum (mtpa). The company has a retail network in the states of West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand and Orissa.
JSW Cement is very close to commissioning its captive power plant in Salboni for uninterrupted power supply at competitive rates.
