EuroCement will invest over 70m RUR into its Katav Cement Works in 2006. This should allow the works to increase their output up to 1.25Mt in 2006 and 1.4Mt in 2007, the spokesperson for EuroCement said.
Katav has just concluded the commissioning of of three cement-loading units have already been completed, and the new packing department producing cement packs of 50kg has started to operate.
According to a spokesman, the new equipment is going to enable the company to ship three different kinds of cement onto railroad cars and trucks simultaneously and provide for the maximum automation of the process. A new 1-ton big bag unit also allows transfer of two kinds of cement onto the railroad cars and trucks as well as to a buffer store.
