Bolivia’s Fábrica de Cemento Sucre SA (Fancesa) has invited five foreign equipment suppliers to take part in the bidding for the construction of its new plant in Sucre. “We have sent the invitations to European and Asian companies, in case of the Asian firms only to Japanese companies,” said Braulio Yucra, Fancesa director.

Invited were Cemengal (Spain), FLSmidth (Denmark), Kawasaki (Japan), Krupp Polysius AG (Germany) and Grupo Faex (France). These now have 45 days to present their proposals in terms of equipment supply, including detailed engineering and supervision services.

Mr Yucra said the new cement plant represents an investment of US$220m.
