The Sangwon Cement Complex, a leading building-materials producer in the DPRK, is in the Myongdang area, known to have rich deposits of limestone, in Sangwon County of North Hwanghae Province.
In recent years the complex completed the projects for expanding and modernizing production capacity and, based on the achievement, successively exceeded the production results of the past peak year.
From the outset of this year the workers of the complex are making a great deal of efforts to increase cement production with the aim of attaining a higher goal this year, a year of key importance in carrying out the five-year plan for the national economic development.
Every unit and workplace is seething with fervent enthusiasm for creating new norms and records.
Those in charge of supplying raw materials and fuel are increasing successes in extracting and transporting large quantities of materials so as to give a firm guarantee for cement production.
Workers and technicians at Sangwon Limestone Mine, Samchong Mine, Hwachon Coal Mine and Ilchulbong Mine are solving technical problems arising in procuring new deposits and raising the operation rate of mining and transporting facilities, thus stepping up the production and ensuring the quality at the same time.
Major production units of the complex are also in high spirits.
Workers at the calcination workshop are carrying out production plans set for the shift and the day without fail by maintaining and operating machines in a rational way depending on the supply of raw materials and fuel.
Those at the cement workshop are normalizing the operation of reconstructed clinker crushing and delivery lines and overfulfilling the monthly plans.
The central control room is concentrating its efforts on dovetailing all the processes, from raw materials feeding to forwarding, like a cogwheel and taking necessary measures beforehand for smooth production.
The Sangwon Cement Complex, which made significant progress in production and business activities in the new golden age of construction ushered in by the Workers’ Party of Korea, is chosen as one of the top ten excellent enterprises in the DPRK.
