Saudi Cement Co (SCC) is to permanently cease of operations of three kiln lines Hofuf plant due to their age, higher operating costs and lower environmental efficiency.

The company had restarted Lines 1, 2 and 3 at the Hofuf works at the end of last year due to rising demand and market pressures at the time.

However, the decision has now been made to close these kilns and remove them from the plant site. The three kilns have a combined clinker capacity of 1325tpd.
