KJS Cement’s expansion aims for June 2019 completion
29 January 2019

India-based KJS Cement is implementing an expansion of its clinker and cement capacity located at Amilia Lakhwar village, Satna district, Madhya Pradesh. The plant’s clinker capacity will be lifted from 1.5Mta to 2.2Mta while cement capacity will increase from 2.25Mta to 3.55Mta.

The cement plant produces ordinary and pozzolana Portland cements via dry-process technology and the capacity increase will include a 170tph grinding mill and a railway siding to improve logistics. The additional power required will be met from the existing 27MW captive power plant and Madhya Pradesh State Electricity Board’s grid. 

Environmental clearance and consent to establish the INR3.2bn (US$45m) project was received and civil work is currently in progress. The project is due to be completed in June 2019.
