Qatar awards Line No. 5 consultancy contract
Published: 23 November 2012


Qatar National Cement Co (QNCC) has signed a consultancy services’ contract with Belgium’s Basse Sambre for the construction of its fifth cement line.

Under the terms of the contract, Basse Sambre will prepare the global tender ­documents for a turnkey plant of 5000tpd or 7500tpd, parallel to the current lines no. 2-4 at Umm-Bab.

At present, QNCC produces 14,000tpd, sufficient to meet today’s market requirement. However, a fifth line is needed if it is to successfully capture the expected increase in demand.
