Nobsa adds grinding capacity
The project to increase cement grinding capacity at Holcim Nobsa saw the installation of a new vertical roller mill (VRM) in 2010. Storage for additives and finished cement were also added to the facility, while the plant remained fully operational.
Holcim increased its cement capacity in Colombia between 2008-10 by 64 per cent, a total of 0.9Mta of additional cement grinding capacity. The Nobsa expansion project was executed during ongoing operations and included the installation of state-of-the-art facilities. The additional capacity of high-quality cement will help to meet the growing requirements of the Colombian market, which was expected to consume around 9.1Mt in 2011.
