Krichev, Belarus, will get a new dry-process cement plant in November 2012. Construction on the 1.8Mta works is currently underway, said Leonid Skotsky, director of Krichevtsementnoshifer.
The project is being implemented jointly with CITIC Construction and is funded by the China EXIM Bank.
The new plant will be part of an ongoing drive to upgrade the Belarus cement industry. At the end of April, Krasnoselsktroymaterialy commissioned a new 1.8Mta production line and Belarusian Cement Plant (Kostyukovichi) is slated to deliver a similar line by 1 July.
