TEHRAN, Aug. 14 (Mehr News Agency) - An Iranian company has started building a cement plant in Belarus. Iran's Azarab Co. of Arak has embarked on a major project to design and build a cement production plant in this republic. The plant will be capable of producing one million tons of cement per year, the company's managing director said.
Azarab Company's competitive advantages over its rival firms from countries such as Germany, China and Romania led to its winning the bid for the implementation of the project, he maintained.
Development of the €160-million project in the former Soviet republic will take about three years for an average workforce of 500 personnel, he also commented.
Being Azarab company's sixth foreign contract, the company has also concluded preliminary agreements with the East European republic to build a gas-fueled and a hydroelectric power plant there, Nezamabadi further announced.
