Havana.- The Siguaney cement factory, in central Cuba, resumed production of this important product after a partial halt for 18 months.
The plant resumed production of gray cement and by the end of the year, it should complete the works in the kiln to make white cement.
Factory executives pointed out that during the partial halt, work was done to improve the industry, where around 80 percent of the technological equipment was rehabilitated.
After having special refractory bricks in store, a material that is not produced in the country, the factory prioritized the renovation of the gray cement kiln, which started up operations in the first week of November.
The plant was a pioneer in the introduction of Cuban crude oil in the kilns (1987) and has also become a polygon for the development of low-carbon cement in the country.
