Domicem highlighted its sustainable growth in 2018 as the company’s Managing Director, Adriano Brunetti looked back on the year during the company’s Christmas dinner.

"I would like to remind you that in this year we have achieved important goals such as the construction of a photovoltaic energy park, whose work started at the end of 2017 and which we recently inaugurated," Mr Brunetti said. "This new facility is a structure conceived with the most advanced technology currently available, with the capacity to generate 1.5MW and which will guarantee the production of 2.3mkW  of clean energy annually.”

The investment represents the equivalent of having planted 50,000 trees, the reduction of 56,000gal of fossil fuel and 1500t of CO2 emissions per year, said the company.

In addition, the company entered into service a new grinding unit in Haiti, which is expected to facilitate exports from the island, reported El Dinero.

Sergio Nim, Domicem’s commercial director, said in terms of cement demand in the Dominican Republic 2018 had turned out to be a positive year, with consumption up 4.5 per cent YoY to around 4.4Mt of cement. The economic stability of the country and the government maintaining a clear and defined policy for the construction sector as well as private-sector projects had led to an 11 per cent expansion in the sector’s activity.
