Kolkata, May 24 (IBNS): Martin Kriegner, Head of Lafarge Holcim-India Operations and Board of Director for Ambuja Cements on Tuesday inaugurated the augmented Sankrail Grinding Unit at Howrah in West Bengal.
Sankrail Grinding unit is strategically located about 25 kms from Kolkata and was commissioned in the year 2001 with a grinding capacity of 1.2 million tonne per annum. 
 
This included 2 ball mills of capacity 92 tonnes per hour, 2 packers of capacity 180 tonnes per hour,and a manual wagon loading system.
 
Due to the plant's proximity to prime markets and increasing demands of higher dispatches over the years, the plant's capacity was increased to 1.5 million tonne per annum in the year 2010. 
 
With the recent modification the capacity has touched 2.4 million tonne per annum.
 
While inaugurating the expanded project, Martin Kriegner said, “With the focus on increasing our market share in the competitive market of West Bengal and increasing supply to the nearby States of Orissa & Jharkhand by optimising the overall regional logistics cost, a capacity addition of 0.90 million tonne per annum of PPC cement at Sankrail was envisaged. I am sure this will meet the demand of the eastern markets in India."
 
The Sankrail plant’s expansion unfolded as a brown field project in November 2012 with an investment plan of 338 Crore. 
 
The project included installation of Thyssenkrupp Roller pressure of capacity 140 tonnes per hour in Cement mill 1 increasing the capacity to 235 tonnes per hour in combo grinding, 2 additional packers of capacity 240 tonnes per hour mechanized cement rake loading system and an additional Railway line network.
