Union Cementera Nacional Plans to Build Clinker Plant

Union Cementera Nacional (Ucem) plans to build a 2,200 t/d clinker plant that will expand its domestic production from 1,600 t/d to 3,800 t/d. The new plant, to be built in the central province of Chimborazo, is scheduled to start operations in 36 months and will use electricity and bunker to produce clinker. Ucem currently produces 650 t/d of clinker at its existing cement plant in Chimborazo and 950 t/d at its Guapan complex in the southern province of Azogues. The new plant will increase electricity demand at the Chimborazo complex from a current 10MW to 18-20MW. A maximum of 27 USG of bunker will be required at the planned facility to produce each ton of clinker. The fuel will be dispatched by truck from the 20,000 b/d Amazonas (Shushufindi) refinery, located in Sucumbios province in the Amazon oil district. In addition to the new clinker plant, Ecuador is interested in building a cement complex in Isimanchi, located in the southern province of Zamora Chinchipe, close to the Peruvian border. This plant would supply Ecuador's mining industry, for the construction of new access roads, and government housing programs. The plant would be connected to Ecuador's national power grid through a 180km 69kV double circuit line, running from the city of Loja to a new substation in Isimanchi.
