Semen Indonesia has opened a new cement packing plant in Banjarmasin, capital of South Kalimantan province, to help satisfy demand for local construction material.
A port capable of unloading 300tonnes/hour will be installed at the new plant. The plant features a silo cement storage that has two production lines that can pack 2,200bags/hour. The cost of the plant is estimated at €7.58 million (IDR 120 billion).

Semen Indonesia also targets to have its total production capacity increased to 31.8 million tonnes in 2014 and to 40 million tonnes by 2017.
