Published: 10 May 2006

Lafarge said it will build a new cement factory in Aceh with an annual production capacity of 1.6Mta to be operational in 2008. 

The new factory will be a replacement for one of its PT Semen Andalas Indonesia (SAI) destroyed by the tsunami in Aceh in December, 2004.  

Thomas Patrick Ehrhart, president of PT SAI said construction of the factory will soon take place after SAI receives a bridging loan of US$30m.
