Eurocement, the largest building materials group in Russia and the CIS states, reported a five per cent YoY increase in cement deliveries last year, exceeding 2012’s level by 1Mt.

The combined production of the group’s 15 cement plants in Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, amounted to more than 24.5Mt in 2013.

Among the company’s highlights last year was the launch of its 3Mta state-of-the-art 3Mta plant in the Voronezh region. The company also began the realisation of new manufacturing lines to install dry-process production methods at all its existing facilities. This will allow the group to increase its cement output by 5Mta, significantly improve energy efficiency and reduce its environmental impact.

Today, Eurocement group has the capacity to provide high-quality cement for global projects of any complexity and scale. Approximately 80 per cent of all airport air strips laid in Russia over the last few years have been reconstructed and built on its cement including the airports of Pulkovo, Vnukovo, Kazan, Lipetsk, etc.

Many of the country's nuclear energy facilities have been built on the group's cement including the Tatar, Bashkir, Kola, Novovoronezh, Kursk, Kalininsk and Smolensk power plants, among other facilities.

Subway stations have also been built using the group's cement in Moscow, St Petersburg, Samara and other cities, along with rigs, roads, sports facilities of the Universiade 2013 in Kazan and of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi now underway, in addition to stadiums and accompanying infrastructure for the World Cup 2018, including the Spartak stadium in Moscow.

“Our produce is used in residential construction on all levels of complexity: from low-rise to high-rise, from typical projects to elite residencies, comments Mikhail Skorokhod, President of Eurocement group.
