Pakistan: Bestway Cement has inaugurated two eco-friendly, 6MW and 7.5MW waste heat recovery (WHR) plants, with a combined cost of US$16.7m, at its cement plants in Hattar and Farooqia iniHaripur, according to The News International.
"The investment of nearly US$16.7m to set up these WHR power plants in challenging economic times is a testament of Bestway's unwavering commitment towards propelling economic development of Pakistan," said Anwar Pervez, group chairman. "It follows the company's successful acquisition of Lafarge Pakistan, now known as Pakcem Limited, for an enterprise value of US$329m in July 2014." He announced plans for another US$30m of investments in the company, including a 9.8MW WHR power plant at its Kallar Kahar operations later in 2015. The company installed its first 15MW WHR power plant at Chakwal in 2011.
