Qatar National Cement Company has signed a consultancy contract with Basse Sambre according to The Peninsula.
The contract includes the Belgian based consultancy to prepare global tender documents for QNCC’s 5th plant, which once completed is estimated to produce between 5 000 and 7500 tons of clinker per day.
Currently producing over 14,000 tons of cement per day, QNCC are well placed to meet the increasing demand of cement as the country’s infrastructure development increases momentum.
The company made the press earlier this year when it opened its $6 million calcium carbonate plant, a compound which is used in water treatment operations. Speaking at its inauguration, ANCC general manager Mohamed Ali al-Sulaiti said, “There is an agreement with Kahramaa to buy the calcium carbonate for 25 years.”
He continued to say, “QNCC is carefully growing and expanding to play its national role in supporting the infrastructure development in the state, especially after Qatar won the bid for hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup.”
