Plant Head’s Note
The JSW Cement FZE (JSWCF) is the newest addition to the JSW Cement family. It is uniquely placed, both in the group and in UAE, with a production facility for steel grade limestone, aggregates for the construction industry and clinker for cement manufacturing under one roof. All the production facilities are commissioned and are catering majorly to the demands of the JSW group, with the surplus being sold in the open market to third parties. It has both the Fujairah port and Mina Saqr port of Ras-al Khaimah close to the plant works to our advantage in exporting almost the entirety of our production.
The plant can confidently state that the quality of steel grade limestone from their mines is one of the best available. As they develop and penetrate the mines further, the quality shall further improve. The early production records of clinkers have also proved our capability to produce a high grade of clinker. The clinker is also quite suitable for producing blended cement, especially Portland Slag Cement, which is the major focus of JSW Cement Ltd. in India.
As a responsible corporate and socially committed organization, JSW Cement FZE also intends to utilize alternative fuel for clinker production to conserve fossil fuels and also resolve the burning issue of management of waste. Further, the waste heat recovery based power generation system is also planned to be installed to effectively utilize the waste heat, which otherwise would be exhausted into the environment.
The team at JSW Cement FZE is motivated and committed to keeping the flag of the JSW group flying high and taking it to newer heights and achievements.
