UltraTech commissions new plant in Manawar
19 April 2018

UltraTech has commissioned its greenfield facility in Manawar, Madhya Pradesh, with a 2.5Mta clinker capacity. The plant has reached this stage in under a year, which is record time for a plant of this capacity, according to the press release.

The kiln is designed for multi-fuel and alternative fuel usage. Alongside the kiln, the company has commissioned a 1.75Mta grinding unit and an auto-loading facility. The new plant is located in southwest Madhya Pradesh, with no other manufacturing units within a 300km radius. The growing cement demand in the state means that the company’s existing plants are already operating at over 85 per cent utilisation.

Including this factory, UltraTech has 19 integrated plants and a total cement capacity of 96.5Mta.
Furthermore, another 1.75Mta grinding unit and a 13MW WHR system are under construction, both due to be completed before September 2018.
