Cacuaco Cement Plant has a total area of approximately 35ha and a designed production capacity of 6.000 tons of cement per day. The Cement Plant facilities comprise several industrial and administrative buildings, of medium and large size, namely: Buildings for Offices and Workshops; Raw material Silos; Clinker and Cement Storage Silos; Cyclone Towers, Cement Grinding Mills and Calcining Kilns.
