JSW to hike cement capacity

JSW Cement plans to set up grinding units closer to markets, instead of clinker units placed near the source of raw material. According to the company, the new units will use clinker imported from countries that have a surplus, thus allowing JSW Cement to add one tonne of capacity at about Rs 180 crore, against Rs 840 crore required to set up a similar capacity under the traditional model. The company plans to establish several such grinding units on the country´s east coast in West Bengal and Odisha, taking its cement capacity up by more than 14 million tonne (mt) to 20 mt by 2020.
