ACC Ltd, part of the LafargeHolcim Group, has  expanded the capacity of its factory in Wadi in the south Indian state of Karnataka to 13,000tpd.

The Beumer Group as main (EPC) contractor has got a repeat order on turnkey, for high-performance belt bucket elevator, type HGBW-HC 1250 x 175.3m. With a distance between centres of 175.3m, this is currently the highest in the world, claims Beumer.
