ACC Ltd said its cement capacity will now reach 30Mta on completion of its expansion programme.

"Our production capacities were enhanced as the company completed its ongoing expansion programme. In September 2010, we commissioned 12,500tpd capacity kiln at Wadi, which is the largest cement kiln in the world. A new clinkering line of 7000tpd was also added at Chanda. Both units were accompanied with new captive thermal power generating units," ACC’s CEO and managing director, Kuldip Kaura said in its 2010 Corporate Sustainable Development report.

With these additions, ACC’s cement capacity will reach 30Mta, Kaura said.

The company’s sales volume stood at 21.29Mt in FY10.

“We are geared up to serve the country’’s economy that is growing at a rate of 8.5 per cent GDP per annum,” Kaura said.
