The second phase, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2017, will include the installation of a second 220,000tpa and an additional investment of approximately US$25m. Upon completion of the second phase, Cemex Nicaragua is expected to reach an estimated total capacity of approximately 860,000tpa.
