Low Paraguay river makes INC clinker transport difficult

The low levels of the Paraguay river are making transport of clinker more difficult. The current water level is adding 20% to the clinker transport bill of Industria Nacional del Cimento (INC), according to its president, Carlos Krüssel Llano.

INC produces clinker at Vallemí and then ships it to its Villeta grinding unit. However, the company’s president assured that Villeta currently has a good stock of clinker and that it would have no difficulties supplying the market with the necessary volumes of cement.
