Published: 24 August 2015


LafargeHolcim today completed its Tuban project in Indonesia with the official opening of the second kiln line at the cement plant. The new plant will allow LafargeHolcim to tap into key developing markets in Indonesia’s East Java Province. The plant’s coastal location and jetty provides the Group with the flexibility to ship products to other important interisland markets including Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi.

Tuban is a state-of-the-art plant that allows for the highly-efficient production of cement and better distribution. The plant has a cement capacity of 3.4Mta and is located in eastern Java around 200km from the city of Surabaya. The cement mill of the first line was put into commercial operation in December 2013 and the kiln followed in September 2014.

As one of the largest cement companies in Indonesia, Holcim Indonesia, a member of the LafargeHolcim Group, operates three integrated cement plants and one grinding station with a combined capacity of around 12.5Mta. LafargeHolcim has a 1.6Mta cement plant operated by Lafarge Indonesia and situated on Sumatra.
