Sharjah cement factory started its operation with a 800 TPD long dry kiln in 1977 with a Cement grinding capacity of 30 TPH cement mill aggregating a Clinker production capacity of 0.26 Million MT per year and Cement grinding capacity of 0.24 Million MT per year. After installation of a new Cement mill and packing plant in 1983 by UBE industries, Japan, the total grinding capacity of the Factory was increased to 1.1 Million MT per annum.
Cement factory had two cement storage silos each of capacity of 3,500 MT. Two additional cement silos, each of 10,000 MT were built in 1983 and a storage silo of 1200 MT was constructed in 1998. The total product storage capacity thus went up to 28,200 MT.
In the year 2004, Cement grinding capacity was increased to 1.90 Million MT per year with installation of a Cement mill of 100 TPH by CPB. In the year 2006 Cement grinding capacity was further increased to 2.97 Million MT per year with installation of a Cement mill of 135 TPH by CPB.
In the year 2007, Clinker capacity was further enhanced to 2.2 Million MT per year with upgradation of 800 TPD long dry kiln with installation of 5 Stage Pre-heater and associated equipment to 2000 TPD.
One additional Cement silo of 10,000 MT was constructed for storing GGBS exclusively in 2007. The total product storage capacity thus went upto 38,200 MT.
In the year 2009, Cement grinding capacity was increased to 4.27 Million MT per year with installation of a Cement mill of 165 TPH by CPB.
Now, the Total installed capacity of Clinker is 2.2 Million MT per year and Cement grinding capacity is 4.27 Million MT per year.
