Commercial start-up of new cement mills at Arabian Cement Co.’s Rabigh plant has been delayed to 3Q18. The mills had been expected to go into operation in 4Q17 but construction work is still ongoing.
The delay is “due to the contractor’s failure to comply with the timetable,” the company said in a release to the Saudi Stock Exchange.
The second-phase of the project – which will see the engineering, supply, and construction of a clinker production line – is still under review, the company added. A decision will be made following the ongoing project study.
This is the latest delay to hit the project, which had been due to start-up in 2Q16. This was later delayed to 1Q17 before the latest push back to the schedule. Chinese engineering company, CNBM, was originally awarded the contract for construction of the mills in April 2015.
