Oman: Raysut Cement upgrades

Raysut Cement is in the process of completing several expansions and improvements across its domestic and international assets.

One project currently underway is the upgrade of its gas supply station at its Salalah plant in Oman. The upgrade will enable the plant to receive an additional 40,000m3 of gas as fuel per day. According to Chairman of the Board of Directors, Ahmed Yousuf bin Alawi, upon completion of the project, the plant’s production capacity will increase to approximately 130,000-140,000tpa.

The company has also recently completed works at its distribution terminal in Duqm, Oman, which is expected to commence operations in 3Q16. The terminal will ease supply of cement for development and construction activities in the area.

In addition to these projects, Raysut Cement is also installing a 12,000Mt silo at its UAE subsidiary, Pioneer Cement, to be commissioned by the end of November.
