In 2001, HeidelbergCement began its market entry with acquisition of the Cesla cement plant. Close to St. Petersburg in the Leningrad region, the Cesla plant has a production capacity of around 1 million tonnes. Today, HeidelbergCement operates a second cement plant, Construction Materials, in the city of Sterlitamak in the Republic of Bashkortostan, with a capacity of 1.8 million tonnes. Since January 2015, Construction Materials cement plant has continued its activities as part of HeidelbergCement Rus LLC as a branch. The new Novogurovsky plant (Tula), located around 150 km south of Moscow in the Tula region, has an annual cement production capacity of 2 million tonnes. The plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and was inaugurated in July 2011. Since January 2015, Tulacement has been part of HeidelbergCement Rus LLC as a branch. HeidelbergCement has an annual production capacity of 4.6 million tonnes of high-quality cement in Russia. Moreover, HeidelbergCement in Russia runs cement terminals in Kaliningrad and Murmansk.
In addition to the cement business, HeidelbergCement operates one aggregates pit in the Tula region. The national management activities, such as Finance, Sales, HR, Communication, and Business Development are handled mainly by our offices in the cities of Moscow and Podolsk (Moscow region).
The Cesla plant located in the Leningrad region supplies the St. Petersburg market with various types of high-quality cement. The new Novogurovsky plant (Tula) supplies the booming markets in Moscow and the Moscow region. The Construction Materials plant in Sterlitamak provides HeidelbergCement with an excellent platform for the dynamic development of cement demand in the Republic of Bashkortostan. The terminal in Kaliningrad is very important for construction activities in the Kaliningrad region, since there is no cement plant in the area. High-quality cement is imported from HeidelbergCement plants in Sweden. In the northern region of Russia, in Murmansk, our subsidiary Norcem Kola imports and sells high-quality cement shipped by vessels from HeidelbergCement plants in Norway.
