Egypt: Siemens to launch Sicement Electrification system
Published: 17 August 2016


Siemens Egypt will on Thursday launch its new Sicement Electrification System at the “Bringing Power to Cement Industry” forum in Cairo, Daily News Egypt reports.

Egyptian cement manufacturers have been hit by rising costs of power as the government has reduced subsidies on natural gas. At the same time, cement consumption has been rising and production hit 70Mt in 2015, the government calculates.

The Sicement system offers producers with a straightforward means of connecting to the national grid and holds out the promise of saving energy and reducing carbon emissions.
