Oman: Raysut Cement has held the groundbreaking ceremony for its new 1.0Mt/yr Duqm grinding plant. The project will cost US$30m. Chief executive officer (CEO) Joey Ghose said that, when operational, the plant will “contribute significantly to our ambitious capacity expansion targets of 10Mt/yr by 2022, which is expected to be further scaled up to 22Mt/yr in the near future. Secondly, it will help us generate more employment opportunities, aiding our efforts to enhance social and economic progress in Oman.”

The company acquired the lease to the site in the Port of Duqm in September 2019 as part of an on-going series of ‘calibrated’ investments in “locations where demand is high and locally available additives are at close proximity.” Ghose added, “Our aim is to develop Raysut Cement into a global leader in cement manufacturing, supply and exports, and the development of Duqm is an important element in this strategy. Our expansions are dovetailed to the opportunities that exist and are upcoming in the markets we focus on, for instance in East Africa - a booming market for the next 50 years.”
