State-run construction biggie, Vinaconex, has commissioned a cement grinding facility in Ba Ria-Vung Tau to help meet market demand in Southern Vietnam.

Manufacturing the company’s new Cam Pha cement brand name, the facility is tailored to turn out 1.48Mta from 1.2Mt clinker imported from Thailand and Taiwan.

The factory is estimated to cost VND1 trillion (US$62.5m) in total investment, covering 20ha site in the My Xuan A Industrial Park, Tan Thanh District.

The southern facility is a branch of Vinaconex’s Cam Pha Cement Plant worth VND5 trillion ($310m) in the northern Quang Ninh Province.

The Cam Pha town-based cement plant is designed to produce 2.3Mt of PCB40 cement and 1.89Mta of clinker.

Construction of the plant started last June and is due for completion late this year, turning it into the largest facility of its kind in Vietnam.
