PPC ready for demand growth following construction plans on cement factory

26 May 2015

Cement producer PPC is gearing up for expected demand growth by constructing a new 3 000 t/d clinker kiln at its Slurry cement factory, in the North West.

The new kiln at Slurry will boast a six-stage preheater tower design as was used on PPC’s Dwaalboom kiln, in Limpopo, that was completed in 2008.

PPC is the only cement producer boasting this state-of-the-art technology that will improve power and heat consumption and the overall efficiency of the plant,” the company notes.

In addition to PPC’s new construction, the company is focusing on expansion into Africa and is currently actively expanding its operations in four African countries.

PPC aims to derive 40% of its revenue from the rest of Africa by 2017.
