Furthermore, the first shipment of equipment relating to Gharibwal's new 250tph grinding mill has arrived and erection work has started. The mill is expected to become operational by the third quarter of 2017.
For the six months to the end of December 2016, Gharibwal Cement's sale volumes increased by around four per cent. Higher sales helped mitigate an increase in coal and fuel prices. During the period, its cement dispatches rose by four per cent YoY to 736,712t.
