|ENVIRONMENT MANAGEMENT è ENVIRONMENTAL DATA|
Company : Cement Manufacturing Company Limited (CMCL)
Project : Started Production of 4848 TPD Grinding unit in Guwahati with an annual capacity of 1.6 million Tons.
CMCL proposes to set up a Grinding unit of 1.6 million tons capacity in Guwahati, Assam. The Guwahati Grinding Unit site is located at Chamata Pathar, Mouza Sonapur, Dist Kamrup on the national highway NH-37 connecting Guwahati and lower Assam. The project site is located at 42 km from Guwahati and 97 km from Shillong. The nearest airport is Guwahati, which is at a distance of about 45 km from the plant site. The site is well connected by road from Guwahati. Digaru is the nearest broad gauge railway station of North Eastern railway at about 3 km distance from the plant site. We propose to develop our own railway siding by taking a branch line of 2 km length from the existing main track. The Grinding unit at Guwahati would bring CMCL closer to its largest market viz. Assam which is currently accounts for almost 50% of the sales. The Units would also cater to neighboring states like Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland. This will result in substantial savings in freight cost.
Company : Star Cement Meghalaya Ltd. (SCML)
Constitution: Subsidiary of CMCL
Project : Started Production of 5300 TPD Cement Clinkerization unit for manufacturing of Clinker in Lumshnong, Meghalaya with an annual capacity of 1.75 million Tons.
For increasing the cement clinker manufacturing capacity, SCML is started 5300 TPD Clinkerisaton Unit at Lumshnong, Meghalaya. The clinker to be produced by this unit shall be transferred to CMCL’s proposed grinding units at Guwahati (as mentioned below) which will be adjacent to the main markets.
The company is guided and technically assisted by reputed technical consultant viz. M/s Holtec Consulting Private Limited, Gurgaon (HOLTEC) which is the leading and most reputed technical consultants in the cement industry and has set up more than 300 cement plants in India and abroad. The existing cement plants of CMCL have also been set up under technical assistance from Holtec.
Considering substantial energy saving, SCML has opted for the Vertical Roller Mill (VRM) technology for the proposed clinker unit. The unit will enjoy the benefit of proximity of high quality raw materials viz limestone and coal. The project is located adjacent to our existing cement plant which will facilitate use of existing infrastructure, social amenities like residential colony, dispensary, shopping complex, guesthouse, school etc. As per North Eastern Industrial and Investment Promotion Policy (NEIIPP), 2007, the unit will be eligible for Excise Duty Exemption, Income tax exemption, Capital Investment Subsidy, Interest Subsidy, Comprehensive Insurance and Transport Subsidy. The Clinkerization unit of SCML is scheduled to commence commercial production from April 2010.
Company : Meghalaya Power Limited (MPL)
Constitution: Subsidiary of CMCL
Project : Started a Power Plant of (8*1 MW) capacity power plant in Meghalaya in Phase - I
Looking scarcity of power in Meghalaya State, Meghalaya Poser Limited (MPL) has set up a Captive power plant of 8 x 1 MW in Phase -I to cater to the power requirement of "STAR CEMENT". In turn the production cost of cement also will be reduced. Phase-I has already commissioned and put in to commercial production in September 2009.
Project : Started a Power Plant of (43*1 MW) capacity power plant in Meghalaya in Phase - II
For increasing the power generation capacity, the company will set up a 43 MW thermal power plant in phase - II. Power generated from Phase - II of the project will be used to cater to the power requirement of the group Companies. The entire cement mill power demand will be met with the new Thermal power plant and the balance power will be exported to Meghalaya State Electricity Board (or) Power Grid Corporation Limited by stepping up to 132 KV ffrom 11 KV generation level. With captive generation of power, the company will enjoy a cost advantage in its power cost savings.
