Long Son Cement, which is located in the Thanh Hoa province in the Middle of Northern Vietnam, has received the approval for their cement grinding project. The project for GU2 dates back to 2019 and foresees an expansion of the cement grinding capacity from 1.45 Mta to 3.4 Mta. Total project investment costs are VDN 1,700 bn, of which about 73.3% will be provided by loans. The Thanh Hoa Provincial People’s Committee is expecting the new unit to be operational beginning of next year. Long Son operates 3 kiln lines (photo). Most of the clinker has been transported to Southern Vietnam or exported. However, Vietnam’s clinker exports declined significantly in the last few years.
