President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will inaugurate within days the Middle East’s largest cement pant, opening in the Beni Suef governorate on the Eastern Desert Road.
The Armed Forces Engineering Authority began to make the finishing touches to the opening of the plant in April, and the factory was inspected by the head of the Armed Forces Engineering Authority Kamel al-Wazir to follow-up the final touches, in preparation for its opening.
Beni Suef cement factory is the largest cement plant in Egypt. Six cement production lines were established and the Armed Forces established it in 18 months instead of four years.
Each line produces 6,000 tons per day for several types of cement, such as type2, and opc, which are the two most important cement types used in all of Egypt’s current projects. All lines are expected to produce 36,000 tons of various cement daily, totaling 13 million tons Cement annually.
China has participated in the establishment of plant units, the latest high-quality and environmentally-friendly production units. The plant cost 900 million euros, equivalent to $1.12 billion, without the cost of civil constructions.
The factory is equipped with an airstrip, furnished administrative offices, and parks.
