Published: 03 December 2015


Qatar-based producer Al Khalij Cement Co has added another production line to take the total cement capacity to 15,500tpd.

The second “identical” production line will double the clinker capacity to 12,000tpd and enhance the cement production by more than 50 per cent to 15,500tpd.

The cement company, which is a part of Qatari Investors Group, has started initial production and will ramp up to full capacity within few weeks. Through the new production line, clinker production will increase by 6000tpd (from the existing 6000tpd) and cement production to 15,500t (from 9500tpd).
