Ciments de Bizerte, a Tunisian company specialising in the production of cement and lime, has been awarded a contract from builder Polysius France, an affiliate of Germany's ThyssenKrupp.
Ciments de Bizerte signed a contract for the upgrade of its second clinker production line with Polysius SAS-France. Under the agreement, Polysius will upgrade Ciments second production line of clinker. The upgrading will result in a high-tech, environment-friendly plant that will utilise innovative techniques for saving energy. The upgrading is expected to be completed in approximately two year from the date of signing the contract. Ciments did not release the financial details of the project, which was awarded after an international tender earlier this year. Ciments de Bizerte is currently in the process of updating the outlines of its business plan.
