Cement plant planned to be expanded by Cimpor
The Dondo grinding facility of Cimentos de Portugal (Cimpor), a Portuguese cement group, is mulling the expansion of its Dondo grinding facility in Mozambique. The expansion will be effected with the addition of a clinker plant. Feasibility studies are underway to set up a clinker plant next to the company's unit in Dondo. The addition of the clinker plant to the company's existing setup is meant to cater to the increased demand from Mozambique's construction sector. The company had launched a rehabilitation program in 2010 which enabled it to increase clinker production by over 30 percent and reduce imports considerably.Through this increased production, the company expects to cater to the vast demand in the local market which has been witnessing rapid development.
