Viswamber Cements to set up integrated cement plant at Pedavedu

Viswamber Cements to set up integrated cement plant at Pedavedu and Gundiapalli in Mathampally in Nalagonda district of Andhra Pradesh.  The proposed rated capacity of the plant Integrated Cement Plant (Cement 1.5  MTPA, Clinker 1.0 MTPA), Captive Power Plant (15 MW) and Limestone mine (1.5 MTPA, 130.34 ha) . Limestone (1.5 MTPA), Bauxite (0.03 MTPA), Gypsum (0.05 MTPA) Coal (0.20 MTPA) will be used for cement manufacturing. Coal will be sourced from Singharani and WCL coalfields. Gypsum will be sourced from EID Parry India Ltd., Chennai and Coromandal fertilizers Ltd., Vizag, A. P.  Fly ash will also be sourced from Vijaywada TPS and Kothagydam TPS. Cement manufacturing will involve raw material grinding, blending of raw material, coal etc., preheating of coal in six stage pre-calciner string, pyro-processing and calcinations in the kiln, clinker cooler and storage, cement grinding and packing. AFBC boiler will be installed to generate power (15 MW). 

The Open cast mechanized mining will be carried out in 130.04 ha to a depth of 30-40 m. involving drilling by hydraulic drills, blasting by ANFO & Slurry explosives, excavation by Hydraulic excavators, transporting to crushers etc.  The captive Lime stone mine is adjacent to the cement plant.  120 ha will be mined. Expected mine life is 30 years.  Mined out area will be converted into a water reservoir. Mining lease area is granted by the State Govt. 88.88 Million Tons limestone reserves are available in lime stone mine area.  Production capacity of the limestone will be 1.5 MTPA and used in proposed cement plant.  Following facilities will be installed in the proposed plant:
