More Cement Production in Nicaragua

Holcim has started to operate its expanded cement plant, increasing production capacity by 30%, going from 330 thousand tons of cement per year to more than 400,000.

Thursday, April 9, 2015

The plant expansion includes the startup of a dynamic high efficiency separator with which it has achieved its increase in production. In the last two years Holcim has invested approximately $10 million, and this year it plans to invest $6 million with the launch of a roller press.

Henry Rathgeb, company manager, told that "... Holcim's next generation milling operation now has a separator, a tool that will help them have optimal power consumption. They have also installed a self-ventilation system which prevents particulate contamination and are working on optimizing their production processes in order to improve the dispatch and packaging system. They have also equipped themselves with mega-silos, a style of construction designed for storing cement. "
