Work on the new Oruro cement works in Caracollo, owned by Empresa Pública Productiva Cementos de Bolivia (Ecebol), is steadily progressing.

Following an inspection of the construction of the Oruro cement works in Caracollo, engineering works have advanced by 17 per cent and the overall project has been completed by around a quarter. Therefore, the commissioning of the plant is expected in 2017.

The plant covers an area of 9ha, excluding the quarry and reflects an investment of around US$245m. Operating expenses at works are estimated to be in the region of US$50m.
