16 October 2017

On Friday, 13 October the second line of the Las LLanadas plant in Trujillo, Venezuela, was commissioned, increasing the cement works’ capacity by 0.5Mta to 1.35Mta.

Line No 2 includes a 64m-long kiln and General Lynch Dávila, president of the Corporación Socialista de Cementos, which owns the cement plant, said that the company’s technology “is a model throughout the South American region.”

"We also have a large warehouse in which 12,000t of cement will be stored and two bulk dispatch systems capable of delivering 200tph of cement,” said Mr Dávila. Moreover, the project has included an automatic system that will facilitate "packaging 10,800bags/hour".

The line is the result of negotiations between the Venezuelan state and China while the resources to ensure this year’s production were approved by the Venezuela’s President Nicolás Maduro.
