Afghan cement factories to be put up for bidding

cement factoryThree major Afghan cement companies will be put out for bidding by the end of the March, said the Ministry of Mines.

Last year in March, the Pesghaman Company of the Islamic Republic of Iran won the bid to establish a cement factory in Herat.

The contract, however, was terminated by the Ministry of Mines, as the company failed to fulfill their commitments in due time.

According to the Ministry’s spokesman Ahmad Tamim Asi, the company failed to produce 3,000 tons of cement per day in 27 months, which is the amount of cement the factory is capable of producing. “The company does not have the essential technical and financial facilities to excavate the raw materials needed to produce the cement.”Tolo News

The other two cement companies that will be put out to tender are  Ghori in Baghlan province and Jabul Saraj in Parwan province.
