The order is valued at around EUR100m and includes the delivery of design and engineering, full equipment supply, automation systems, installation and commissioning, as well as training and extended supervision.

"This greenfield plant will be utilising the most modern and energy-efficient equipment with the lowest possible environmental impact. I am also very pleased that with training and supervision included in the contract, we will help create 300 jobs in this region – as well as a source of cement for continuing regional development.
