China Resources Cement (Fengkai) Co on Thursday signed an agreement with a French company to construct a 40km-long belt veranda in Zhaoqing city, Guangdong province, for the transportation of lime stone. This will be the longest belt veranda in Asia.
The cement production project to be constructed in Fengkai county, Zhaoqing city with investment of HKD 5.9bn, is one of the two largest investment projects there. The project will consist of ten new-type dry cement production lines with a daily capacity of 4500t, several waste heat generating stations and ten deep-water berths and 40km-long belt veranda.
The dry cement production lines will start trial operation in the first half of 2009 and totally operate in 2010 with an annual production capacity of 20Mt.
The belt veranda will be designed by the French company and go across five towns in Fengkai county.
