Oman Cement expands its clinker and cement capacity

OCC Muscat Plant 1

Oman Cement, in which Huaxin has a 64.66% share, is expanding its integrated cement plant in the Misfah industrial area in Muscat, Oman and will also produce different fly-ash cements. The company has 3 kiln lines and 5 cement mills with a clinker capacity of 2.6 Mta and of 3.6 Mta for cement. The plant was producing in 2023 almost at full capacity and therefore kiln line 3 will be upgraded through debottlenecking and a cooler modification from 4000 to 6500 tpd. A new mill no. 6 will be installed. The planned new greenfield plant at Duqm with a capacity of 5000 tpd of clinker is still under consideration, but not much realistic now, due to challenging market conditions.
