JSW Cement

JSW Cement has announced that the cement production capacity at its Dolvi plant in Maharashtra has increased to 2.2 million tonne per annum (MTPA).

In a statement, the Sajjan Jindal-led company said with this expansion from one MTPA to 2.2 MTPA, the current installed capacity of the company has increased to 12.6 MTPA.

“Our Dolvi cement unit is located closest to our customers in Maharashtra thereby ensuring that all their requirements are serviced quickly and with the freshest quality cement. It enables us to become an integral part of state’s infrastructure growth story,” it said.

According to Jindal, this expansion along with other capacity enhancement work already underway at various location across the country will take the installed capacity of JSW Cement as a whole to 14 MTPA by April this year.

The completion of our capacity enhancement programme at Dolvi brings us closer to achieving our overall company target of 20 MTPA by December 2020. We will achieve this capacity target through a combination of brownfield and greenfield projects. We are also evaluating various inorganic opportunities to further ramp up our capacity growth, Jindal stated.
