Shipments had previously been carried out from Iran to Bahrain in small barges. However, a source told CemNet News that given the high purity of gypsum originating from Oman (above 91 per cent), the company has now chosen to source gypsum from the sultanate.

Indeed, this was the first bulk cargo vessel for the cement industry to be discharged at the Khalifa Bin Salman Port, the source highlighted.
