Uzbekistan to build $250M cement plant

The Almalyk Mining and Metallurgical Plant (AMMP) by 2017 will build a cement plant in Surkhandarya region in southern Uzbekistan, AMMP said.

The Government of Uzbekistan has instructed AMMP to start negotiations with Turkey’s Dal Teknik Makina on the project’s implementation. The contract for the plant’s construction could be signed this autumn. The new plant will produce 1.5 million tons of cement a year. Construction must be completed in two years. 

The project worth $250 million will be financed by AMMP and with loans from the Fund for Reconstruction and Development of Uzbekistan and Uzbek banks. 

Earlier, the plant was to be constructed by national oil and gas company Uzbekneftegaz, but over the past three years it has failed to attract foreign partners to the project. 

Late in 2012, AMMP started construction of a $114.2 million cement plant in Jizzak region, with an annual production capacity of 760,000 tons of Portland cement and 350,000 tons of white cement. Dal Teknik Makina is the project’s general contractor. The plant is to be built by the end of 2014. 

Uzbekistan now has six cement plants capable of producing seven million tons of cement a year. According to official statistics, in 2012 cement production in Uzbekistan increased by 1.3 percent compared to 2011 – to 6.78 million tons.
