The Chi­nese com­pany Bei­jing Tri­umph In­ter­na­tional En­gi­neer­ing Co. (part of the CNBM in­dus­trial group) has signed a con­tract for the con­struc­tion of a new ce­ment plant by «dry method» in Uzbek­istan.

The con­tract with a to­tal cost of more than $ 160 mil­lion as­sumes per­for­mance of works on de­sign­ing, con­struc­tion, de­liv­ery, man­u­fac­tur­ing and in­stal­la­tion of equipment, as well as train­ing of per­son­nel. The new plant is planned to be built on the ba­sis of the ex­ist­ing en­ter­prise Ahangarance­ment and launched by 2020.

The project will be im­ple­mented within the frame­work of the agree­ment signed by the Chair­man of the Board of Di­rec­tors of EUROCEMENT Group Fi­laret Galchev and the Chair­man of the Board of Uzquril­ish­ma­te­ri­al­lari Botir Zaripov.

- To­day Uzbek­istan is de­vel­op­ing dy­nam­i­cally. Con­sump­tion of build­ing materials is grow­ing. The pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity of Ahangarance­ment is now 100% loaded. The de­mand for the com­pany's prod­ucts is in­creas­ing not only in Uzbek­istan, but also in neigh­bor­ing coun­tries. The con­struc­tion of a new ce­ment plant will, on the one hand, fully meet de­mand within the coun­try, on the other - to in­crease the sup­ply of prod­ucts for ex­port, - Fi­laret Galchev said.

A new plant with a ca­pac­ity of 3 mil­lion tons of ce­ment a year will be­come the largest sim­i­lar en­ter­prise in Cen­tral Asia and will be equipped with high-tech equipment mainly from Euro­pean man­u­fac­tur­ers. The choice as a con­trac­tor of the CNBM in­dus­trial group, which is the world leader in the field of ce­ment en­gi­neer­ing, will al­low EUROCEMENT group to cre­ate in Uzbek­istan one of the most ef­fi­cient and mod­ern en­ter­prises of the build­ing materials in­dus­try.

The im­ple­men­ta­tion of the project will also help ex­pand pro­duc­tion of com­pet­i­tive prod­ucts, re­duce the en­ergy in­ten­sity of the econ­omy, in­tro­duce pro­gres­sive en­ergy-ef­fi­cient and re­source-saving tech­nolo­gies into pro­duc­tion. At the same time, the ca­pac­i­ties of Ahangarance­ment will be used all the time while the con­struc­tion of a new in­dus­trial en­ter­prise is un­der­way.

Cur­rently, there are five large ce­ment plants in the coun­try: Kyzylkum­ce­ment, Ahangarance­ment, Ku­vasayce­ment, Bek­abad­ce­ment, Jiz­zakh ce­ment plant, as well as a num­ber of small en­ter­prises. Their to­tal ca­pac­ity ex­ceeds 8.5 mil­lion tons of prod­ucts per year. In to­tal, in the next five years, in our coun­try, an in­crease in the out­put of ce­ment is planned to dou­ble - up to 17 mil­lion tons per year.
