Krichev launches production of cement-shaving blocks

Yesterday Krichev started held the opening ceremony of the plant producing cement-shaving blocks. The product is new to Belarus. Initiators of the project are two companies – “Belzarubezhstroi” (Belarus) andVST Building Technologies AG (Austria).

According to Gennady Bochkov, director of the plant which official name is SOOO “TsSP BZS”, Krichev is an ideal place. “Krichev cement plant” which is the main supplier of raw material is close to the plant. Neighbouring forestry’s will supply the cement-shaving blocks enterprise with timber. Two components that are necessary for new blocks production are also local. The new production is considered import-replacing since cement-shaving blocks used to be brought to Belarus from Russia.

Though cement-shaving blocks are a new produce for Belarus they are well-known in the world. In Scandinavian countries these blocks are used to construct houses. Krichev’s plant is planning to produce stationary moldings for solid constructions. The moulding does not need additional daubing and is completely ready for decorative coating. The enterprise will also produce blocks to decorate buildingsoutside and inside.

The project capacity of the plant is 60 thousand cubic meters blocks a year. 50% of the produce will be exported, the remain will be sold at the local market.
