HÀ NỘI — Fico Tây Ninh Cement Joint Stock Company (TAFiCO) started construction of the second production line of Tây Ninh cement plant in the southern province of Tây Ninh on Tuesday.
Located in Cây Cầy hamlet in Tân Hòa Commune, Tân Châu District, the plant’s second phase has a total investment of some VNĐ4.8 trillion, covering an area of 11.5ha. The construction work includes mining of raw material and grinding of cement and other supporting items.
According to TAFiCO’s leaders, the second production line uses advanced European technology, including a clinker kiln with a designed capacity of 4,000 tonnes of cement per day, equivalent to 1.26 million tonnes per year (capable of upgrading to 5,000 tonnes per day) and a cement grinding mill with a capacity of one million tonne per year.
The project is expected to be completed in 2021, taking the total annual production capacity of TAFiCO to over three million tonnes of clinker and 4.5 million tonnes of cement.
Advanced technology will allow the production line to use a variety of solid and liquid fuels and produce new types of cement to meet the increasing demand for construction.
To meet the goal of sustainable development and environmental protection, the second line integrates a power generation system utilising the residual heat of the entire plant, reducing electricity consumption and dust emissions. The clinker kiln is capable of processing various types of waste.
TAFiCO aims to become one of the leading cement companies in Việt Nam in the next five years by investing in human resources, optimising operational efficiency, expanding the market and building trust with partners and customers.
Deputy Minister of Construction Bùi Phạm Khánh underlined the necessity to use resources optimally and asked TAFiCO to work closely with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment along with local authorities to protect the environment and ensure the health of people in the area.
At the commencement ceremony, TAFiCO donated VNĐ1.05 billion to the Social Security Programme of Tân Châu and Dương Minh Châu districts and VNĐ300 million to support the “Fund for the Poor” in Tây Ninh Province.
Dương Văn Thắng, vice chairman of Tây Ninh Province’s People’s Committee, acknowledged and praised TAFiCO’s achievements in production and business activities as well as its contribution to local budgets and community development inthe past. — VNS
