Cements are made of finely powdered powders that, when combined with water, solidify to form a solid mass. Hydration, the chemical reaction of the cement compounds with water to produce minute crystals or a gel-like substance with a large surface area, is what causes setting and hardening.
Although cement can be used “neat,” or as a grouting material, its typical application is as mortar and concrete, where it is combined with aggregate, an inert substance. Mortar is made by combining cement with sand or crushed stone that must be smaller than 5 mm (0.2 inch).
The Oman Cement market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
As part of a brownfield expansion of its complex in Misfah in Muscat Governorate, Oman Cement Company (OCC) has announced plans to build a new cement production line with a capacity of 10,000 metric tonnes per day (tpd).
The publicly traded company will also increase the third production line’s capacity from 4,000 tonnes per day to 5,000 tpd. OCC’s total daily capacity will consequently rise to 15,000 tpd. Promoting cement self-sufficiency and lowering imports is also consistent with OCC’s goals. About 50% of Oman’s cement needs are imported. Well-qualified and trained Omanis will have employment options thanks to the high-tech plant.
OCC has hired PEG Resources Ltd. of Switzerland to handle the technical study, contracting, and contracting as well as project execution oversight. The integrated sovereign wealth fund of the Sultanate, Oman Investment Authority (OIA), owns the government’s interest in Oman Cement, the nation’s first cement producer.
