With a total investment of more than VND5,000 billion, covering nearly 60 ha, Tan Thang Cement plant has pursued the direction of sustainable development, pioneering in technology with the slogan "Making a difference - Building trust".

Tan Thang Cement plant is favorably located in Tan Thang Commune, Quynh Luu District, Nghe An Province, adjacent to Nghi Son International General seaport; near the abundant, high-quality raw material source, ensuring a stable and long-term supply of raw materials for production. In April 2020, the first tons of products of Tan Thang Cement appeared on the market and were quickly welcomed by consumers. Tan Thang cement plant, with a capacity of 5,000 tons of clinker/day, equivalent to 2 million tons of cement/year, has created more than 400 direct jobs, mainly recruited from locals, contributing more than VND200 billion per year to the State budget, creating motivation for the development of Southern Thanh Hoa province – Northern Nghe An province region.

With the orientation of sustainable development, and pioneering in technology, Tan Thang Cement has conquered domestic and international cement consumers such as the U.S., Australia and China, aiming to expand to the Philippines and other markets. Currently, Tan Thang cement plant is operating a modern production line, applying new technology solutions for high productivity and energy saving. Self-alignment 2-pier rotary kiln supplied by FLSmidth (Denmark) is of advanced technology in cement production. A new generation vertical cement mill supplied by Loesche (Germany) has been used for the cement grinding line. An advanced packing line with high accuracy has been supplied by Haver & Boecker (Germany).

Tan Thang Cement satisfies domestic and foreign consumers thanks to its products of high and stable quality, beautiful color, and variety of packing from ordinary 50-kg bags to 500 - 2,000-kg Jumbo bags and other types of packing. Cement and clinker products have fully met the strictest standards such as American Standards (ASTM), and European Standards (EN).

Towards green production and social responsibility, the plant uses waste from other industries in production; saving electrical power, especially minimizing consumption of power at peak hours.  A waste heat recovery power generation system is being constructed to save energy and reduce emissions to the environment.

Currently, the plant is facing difficulties in transporting output products as well as input raw materials because the construction of over a 700-m traffic route from National Highway 36 to the plant has not been completed yet. The plant expects the attention and direction of Nghe An Province’s leaders and the support of relevant departments to push the route construction progress for the earliest completion.

Mr. Le Dinh Trung, Deputy General Director in charge of production, said “The current environmental standards of Tan Thang cement plant are equal to the European standards, higher than the Vietnamese standards. The trees in the plant area are not dusty. The stacks look like they are not emitting dust. Saving electrical energy is up to 30%. Currently, dust emission at Tan Thang cement plant is always less than 30 mg/Nm3 and the cement grinding area individually is less than 20mg/Nm3”.

As one of the few cement plants in Vietnam capable of producing special types of cement such as superplastic cement, sulfate resistant cement, Tan Thang Cement has been affirming its position and continues to rise strongly, sharing success and development with partners and consumers.
