Saudi Cement to restart line No 6 in May
Published: 16 February 2012


Saudi Cement announced that it will restart its sixth kiln line in May this year at the latest after upgrade work is completed. The company has been working on improving the 4000tpd line’s environmental efficiency as well as converting the kiln’s energy source to crude oil from gas, as per Saudi Aramco’s directions. At the same time, the company will restart three old production lines with a total capacity of 1325tpd to meet rising demand in Saudi Arabia.

Earlier this week, Saudi Cement said it had reached an agreement to sell 200,000t of excess clinker stocks to Qassim Cement to meet the rising demand for cement in the Western Region, and in support of the directions of the Ministry of Commerce & Industry.
