India’s Wonder Cement is ready to start operations at its 2Mta clinker grinding unit in Dhule, Maharashtra, according to The Hindu. The plant represents an investment of INR4.5bn (US$64.54m) by the company.

"The Dhule plant, which will commence operations on Monday, will distribute cement mainly across Maharashtra, while a minimal quantity would be supplied to Madhya Pradesh. The plant will supply mainly to North Maharashtra and Thane, Mumbai and Pune," said Managing Director, JC Toshniwal.

Once the plant is commissioned, the company’s total cement production capacity will rise to 8.75Mta. While an additional 2.5Mta clinker unit is expected to commence operations by mid-2019.

"The civil works for the third clinker unit is in full swing, and we will commission it by mid-next year. This will help to increase our cement production capacity to 11Mta from 8.75Mta," said Mr Toshniwal.

Wonder Cement has also announced plans to set up a further two clinker units as part of a INR25bn expansion project.
