Pakistan’s Kohat plans further capacity expansion

Kohat Plant

Kohat Cement, having a market share of roughly 6.5% in Pakistan increased its kiln line capacity from 6700 tpd to 7064 tpd by means of a pyro process optimization. The Kohat cement factory is located in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, about 150 km west of Islamabad. Already 4 years ago, Kohat announced to build a new large greenfield cement production line in Khushab in the Punjab province, 120 km northwest to Faisalabad. The infrastructure development for this project is now in progress, however the plant order will be awarded when the economic growth outlook is sustainable.
