Kohat Cement plans waste heat recovery project, Pakistan
Published: 17 September 2012


Pakistan cement producer Kohat Cement is planning to construct a 9MW waste heat recovery project (WHRP).

Sources say the plant will reduce electricity dependency on the national grid by 38 per cent. Kohat is currently under negotiations with different suppliers, although the project cost and its timeline are as yet undisclosed.

The company achieved YoY profitability 26 times higher with profit after tax (PAT) of PKR661m in FY12 compared to PKR64m in FY11. This was mainly due to improvements in prices and local dispatches.
