Makawanpur: Hetauda cement industry that remained closed for the past two months resumed production today morning. The industry has also started producing clinkers, it said. The industry was closed after some equipment at its oven broke down and due to a lack of coal, said the industry management.

The industry has imported quality coal from India, Indonesia and Bhutan after calling for bidding, said the industry’s general manager Basanta Raj Pandey. So far, 1,800 metric tonnes of coal has been supplied in the first and second installments, adding that remaining 1,200 metric tonnes will be imported within one month.

Meanwhile, the government-owned cement industry has incurred a loss of over Rs 111 million by the end of the current fiscal year, 2022/23. So far, it has incurred a total loss of Rs 900 million, said the management.
