Published 14 January 2013


Sinoma International Engineering and Indonesian producer PT Cemindo Gemilang have entered into an operation contract for a new clinker line at cement plant in Banten Province, Indonesia.

Under the contract worth US$350.1m, Sinoma International will provide a supply chain of a cement plant manufacturing sections and services to PT Cemindo Gemilang for its Bayah cement plant, at the centre of which will be a 10,000tpd clinker line.

The Ganda Group acquired the Semen Kupang Cement (SKC) plant in Timor which has been out of operation since 2008. It is currently equipped with a 1000tpd clinker production line but due to a long stoppage time the plant has to be recommissioned. The cement mill has been being in operation for several months and cement has been being distributed across the island. The Bayah Plant will also be equipped with its own jetty to support the incoming material and shipping out of the company’s product.

The project's completion date is yet to be officially confirmed but according to information published earlier on the the Ganda Group's website, commissioning is slated to be in mid-2014. The company also has further plans to build a second plant by 2017 followed by a third facility which it aims to be in operation by 2019.
