LafargeHolcim complete Tuban project in Indonesia

LafargeHolcim complete Tuban project

Group marks official opening of second kiln line at 3.4 million tonne cement plant in eastern Java

TODAY, LafargeHolcim have announced the completion of their Tuban project in Indonesia with the official opening of the second kiln line at the cement plant, allowing the Group to tap into key developing markets in Indonesia’s East Java province.

The new plant’s coastal location and jetty will provide LafargeHolcim with the flexibility to ship products to other important inter-island markets, including Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi.

With the completion of the project, the construction of which commenced in 2011, LafargeHolcim say they will be able to leverage their new footprint and asset base in Indonesia and, in future, thrive in a low-investment environment.

The state-of-the-art Tuban plant has an annual cement capacity of 3.4 million tonnes and is located in eastern Java, around 200km from the city of Surabaya.

The cement mill of the first line began commercial operations in December 2013 and its kiln followed in September 2014.

The Tuban plant has been designed to set new benchmarks in health and safety, low-cost production and environmental performance, while delivering a reliable supply of vital building materials for Indonesia’s growth markets.

As one of the largest cement companies in Indonesia, Holcim Indonesia, a member of the LafargeHolcim Group, operate three integrated cement plants and one grinding station with a combined capacity of around 12.5 million tonnes per year.

LafargeHolcim also have a 1.6 million tonnes cement plant, operated by Lafarge Indonesia, situated on Sumatra.
