The following table shows details of production of the Nimbahera and Mangrol cement facilities for the periods indicated
J.K. Cement Works, Nimbahera
Commenced commercial production in 1975 with an initial capacity of 0.3 MnTPA. In the year 1979, a second production line was added to enhance the production capacity to 0.72 MnTPA. 1982 witnessed the incorporation of another production line taking the production capacity to 1.14 MnTPA. In 1988 a pre-calciner was installed and the production capacity touched 1.54 MnTPA. Constant modernization and up-gradation was instrumental in bringing the plant to its present capacity of 3.3 MnTPA with 21 MW CPP.
Major modification to reduce the electrical energy cost & to utilize the waste heat at maximum, Waste Heat Recovery System of 13.2 MW was installed in the year 2007-2008.
Recognition : IMS comprising of ISO-9001:2008 for QMS and ISO-14001:2004 for EMS.
