M P Birla group flagship, Birla Corporation, recently, inaugurated a 3.9 million tonne greenfield plant in Mukutban, Maharashtra, taking the total group capacity to 20 million tonnes.
The Mukutban plant is being set up by RCCPL Private Limited (RCCPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Birla Corporation, at an investment of Rs. 2,744 crore, making it the largest greenfield investment in the history of the group.
In a statement, after lighting of the kiln at the plant, Harsh V Lodha, Chairman, MP Birla Group, said, the Mukutban integrated cement plant is an important milestone in the annals of Birla Corporation Limited.
Lodha also said, “It is no mean feat to complete such a large project under such challenging circumstances with major disruptions on account of Covid which led to several logistical challenges, stoppage of work and a flight of labour from the project site on several occasions."
The plant will be the fourth integrated cement unit of the group and the biggest single line/kiln cement plant in Maharashtra, by capacity. It will be powered by 2 x 20 MW thermal captive power plant, which is based on Air-Cooled Condenser (ACC) technology to minimize water consumption by 90 per cent, the company said.
