Construction materials supplier Karsan Ramji & Sons plan to set up a new cement production facility in Kenya. The KES426m (US$4.9m) plant is expected to produce an average of 700tpd for sale both locally and within the regional market.
Karsan’s factory will be located in Athi River near other established cement producers ARM Cement Ltd, Savanna Cement Ltd, East Africa Portland Cement Company and Bamburi Cement Ltd.
Envasses Environmental Consultants Ltd said in the EIA report that Karsan will produce ordinary portland cement manufactured by intergrinding clinker, pozzolona and gypsum.
