INDUSTRY.co.id - Tanjung- PT Conch South Kalimantan's cement plant operating in Tabalong district, South Kalimantan, eventually increased its production to reach 7,000 tons per day following the operation of two cement processing machines.

Representative of PT Conch South Kalimantan Yandri at Tanjung, yesterday explained the increase of cement production is related to the increasing demand of one of these building materials for the region of Kalimantan to Jakarta.

"Previously we only operated one machine with production of only 3,200 tons per day now production could reach 7,000 tons per day after one other machine operated," explained Yandri.

Previously, the cement plant from China reduced cement production from 3,200 tons per day to about 2,500 tons per day due to constrained distribution.

But since September 15, 2017 two cement processing machines operated so that the production can be doubled.

With cement production reaching 7,000 per day, Yandri said the need for coal has grown and currently reaches 25,000 tons for one month.

Therefore, Conch plans to cooperate with PT Mantimin Coal Mining which will operate in `Bumi Saraba Kawa` in 2018 to meet the needs of coal.

"Currently, Conch cement marketing already covers all areas of Kalimantan including North Kalimantan and demand is also quite high from Jakarta," explained Yandri.
