Cement

Our backward integration from construction saw us tying up with ACC, the cement giant. Alcon Cement Company was the result. In an exclusive joint venture with technical and marketing collaboration with ACC, we've set up a clinker grinding and cement packing plant in Goa. Clinker is supplied from ACC's Wadi plant while slag is procured from Sesa Industries, Aparant Iron & Steel and Tata Metalliks plants in Goa.
 
Alcon Cement Company has its plant situated at Surla village, Bicholim taluka about 15 km from Ponda – Panaji highway (NH-4A) and about 11 km from Sanquelim – Valpoi State highway. From the east, the plant is bounded by the Navelim – Surla – Usagao road. The Mandovi River flows along the west boundary of the plant. Dempo’s Benefication Plant adjoins the plant on the north and to the south there is vacant land.
 
The Company was established in 1994, the first grinding unit in Goa to cater to the requirements of the cement market in Goa with 200 TPD single grinding and packing unit. The Company was started to manufacture Portland Slag cement by utilizing the by product of Pig Iron Plant (Slag) suitable for coastal environment. The Plant capacity was enhanced in 1998 to 500 TPD. The Company has a facility to grind clinker, slag and gypsum to produce Portland Slag cement and Ordinary Portland cement.
 
Alcon Cement Plant is a two stream plant comprising of two parallel cement grinding units, Unit 1 of 13TPH capacity and Unit 2 of 17TPH capacity. The raw materials used in the plant for the manufacture of cement are clinker, slag and gypsum.  Each unit has two silos for cement storage, two silos of 500 MT each for Unit 1 and two silos of 1000 MT each for Unit 2. The plant includes two packing units, Packing Unit 1 of 20TPH and Unit 2 of 40TPH capacity. The plant is equipped with mechanized unloading system through truck tippler.
 
The automated operation of the two grinding units is controlled from the Electronic Control Room which is equipped with logical control desk and independent MCC for Units 1 and 2.  To maintain the power factor there are HT and LT capacitors bank. As the source of power for the plant is 33 kv grid power from Goa Electricity Board a DG set of 180 kv is provided as a stand by power arrangement for the running of packing plant in case of power failure of Public supply, thus ensuring uninterrupted loading of finished product to customers.
 
The plant operates round the clock. Interlocks and material sensors are installed for feed table and weigh feeders, to maintain the quality of the product. The plant has Quality Control facilities and the necessary equipment to facilitate the testing of raw materials and quality of cement as per BIS Standards.  To ensure consistent high quality parameters, periodic, hourly, daily and weekly samples are tested physically and chemically by qualified Gaggers and Chemists at the QC lab.
 
To maintain safe working condition in the plant and to reduce near miss accidents regular fire fighting training, safety training and seminars on safety and quality of life are being conducted for the plant workers, staff and the contract workers. The plant is equipped with fire hydrant systems and fire extinguishers at various locations.
