7200 Tonne/Day Saveh Gray Cement Plant, Production Lines

Client: Saveh White Cement Company
Consulting Engineers: Archen Consulting Engineers
Type of Contract: Construction
Location: Saveh, Markazi Province, Iran
Status: Completed

Project Outline

The Saveh grey cement factory is located 50 km from Saveh, a city in Markazi province in central Iran. Encompassing an area of 120 hectares, the plant is set to produce 7200 tonnes of cement per day, which can be increased to 8000 tonnes. Saveh grey cement factory is one of the most advanced cement producing plants in Iran, as well as the Middle East. Given the fact that over the past 20 years construction time for cement factories built in Iran has averaged 8 years or more, the Saveh factory is completed in 36 months (including civil & installation works), is destined to usher in a new era in Iran’s cement industry as far the speed of construction is concerned. The plant will also exceed national quality standards.

Limestone, the main raw material used in Saveh grey cement factory, is acquired from the huge Doshakh quarry located only 4 km away from the project site. Also, 400 hectares of uncultivated land surrounding the factory is devoted to planting trees, shrubs, and other greeneries, thus providing a pleasant scenery and minimizing the factory’s negative impacts on the environment.
