Mumbai: JSW Cement announced on Tuesday that it will invest nearly Rs 3,000 crore for a new cement manufacturing plant in the Nagaur district of Rajasthan.

This investment includes setting up a clinkerisation unit with a capacity of up to 3.30 million tonnes per annum (MTPA), a grinding unit with a capacity of up to 2.50 MTPA, and an 18-megawatt (MW) waste heat recovery-based power plant.

The funding for this greenfield and integrated facility will come from a mix of equity and long-term debt.

JSW Cement has already received some regulatory and statutory approvals and is in the process of obtaining additional clearances.

This new unit will mark JSW Cement's entry into the North India cement market and is expected to generate over 1,000 direct and indirect jobs, according to the company's press statement.

“This is one of the most significant investments we are making in Rajasthan through our cement business. It puts JSW Cement firmly on its path to achieving a pan-India footprint within the next few years. This will enable us to service the prolific needs of our customers in the northern states of Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab, and the NCR (National Capital Region),” said Parth Jindal, managing director of JSW Cement.

About the North India market, Nilesh Narwekar, chief executive officer of JSW Cement, said, “These states have one of the highest GDP growth rates and are witnessing significant infrastructure and housing development. We are very excited to be able to enter this booming construction market.”

In August, the company revealed its intentions to ramp up capacity from 19 MTPA to 60 MTPA within a span of five years. Furthermore, it outlined its strategy to conduct an initial public offering (IPO) in 2024, with the proceeds earmarked to finance the envisioned expansion.
