At the ceremony, Morin thanked CTIEC and local government departments for their strong support, announcing that the project would run 20 months and come on stream in the second half of 2015. Calliero noted that Kazakhstan is a vigorous and promising market and the project is a major historical event for both Italcement and Shymkent Cement. Kosis stressed that Shymkent Cement Plant would meet the rigorous ecological requirements for modern cities and enhance work safety after the project is completed, thus ranking among Italcement's top production lines.
