HeidelbergCement Group's current production capacity in India has been boosted to 6Mta, a major contribution to which was the commissioning of a split-grinding plant at Jhansi in Uttar Pradesh.

The Loesche mill type LM 53.3+3 C, which was guaranteed for 215tph, is already operating at 235tph, as demonstrated during the performance test in March 2013. The clinker for the cement grinding plant is supplied by HeidelbergCement's Narsingarh unit situated in the state of Madhya Pradesh.

"The overwhelming success was made possible because of a joint effort of all related partners," Loesche said in a statement.
