Published: 12 February 2013


HeidelbergCement India has received an approval for setting up waste heat recovery power plant at its cement plant in Narsingarh, Damoh district, Madhya Pradesh.

The proposed plant will produce approximately 12.15MW of power from available waste heat of pyroprocessing system of all three clinker lines at Narsingarh. The project costs an estimated INR1450m -INR1500m (US$26.8m-US$27.8m) and it is likely to be operational in January 2015.

It will substitute equivalent grid power and thus reduce power cost per tonne of clinker and improve profitability. The board approved the project at its meeting, held on 11 February  2013.
HeidelbergCement India also has manufacturing facilities located at Ammasandra (Karnataka), Damoh, Madhya Pradesh and Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh and has total cement capacity of 5.9Mta.
