Jamaica cement plant to go ahead

Despite a global economic downturn and falling commodities prices, Canadian firm Cemcorp Cement is pressing ahead with plans to construct a US$200-million cement production plant and limestone quarry



Published: Wednesday | March 16, 2011

Construction of Jamaica’s second cement-production plant is expected to begin within the next three months if Canadian engineering firm Cemcorp gets the approval of the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA), the Ministry of Energy and Mining and the parish councils of St Catherine and Clarendon.

Green light for US$340 million cement plant

Canadian outfit Cemcorp, which plans to operate here as Cement Jamaica, was given the green light yesterday to build a US$340 million cement plant in St Catherine.

Cement Jamaica representative Fitz Jackson told the Business Observer that the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) board gave the final nod after a rigorous, 12-month approval process.

He expects “activities on the ground”, or preparation for construction, such as land clearing, to commence by April. “We will now move ahead towards finalising all pertinent arrangements.”

  1. Ask Fitz Jackson, he is listed as a rep for the foreign company

  2. Cost of the plant has now jumped 67% and we are still talking.

    Do we really need another cement plant ???
