Saudi Gypsum to increase Yanbu plant capacity

28 July 2008

Yanbu-based Saudi Mada Gypsum Company is planning to more than double the plaster production capacity at its Yanbu production facility.

The project, operational by September 2009, will increase the capacity of the plaster plant by 240,000 tonnes a year (t/y) to 390,000 t/y.

Claudius Peters Technologies of Germany has been contracted to carry out the engineering and construction work, and will install a multi-million-dollar gypsum calcining system to produce stucco, a type of plaster, as part of a new wallboard line.

Mada Gypsum, established in 2007, is a subsidiary of the local Inshaa Holding Company, itself a part of the Al-Rajhi Investment Group.
