Mangalam Cement to upgrade its Kiln Line 1 in Rajasthan
To upgrade its clinker manufacturing capacity, Mangalam Cement has halted operations of its Kiln Line 1 in Rajasthan, the company has stated in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange. The cement producer stopped operations on May 6, so it can hike capacity by 0.5 mta.
The project is likely to be completed by the end of the second quarter of FY14. It noted that supplies will be sufficient in the interim as it has clinker in stock. Mangalam Cement operates one cement plant in Morak district's Kota in Rajasthan with a capacity of 2 mta of cement.
