WC replacement and expansion plan  Why?  Kilns are old (average 40 years) but well-maintained and still produce good quality cement however much less energy efficient  Impact of new environmental legislation (from 2015) will require significant capex investment  To align WC capacity with future market demand  “Brown fields” preferred to “green fields” approach:  Deliver the same capacity and energy efficiency  Lower capital cost spread over a longer period  Reduced environmental impact  Capacity (increase of ±50%)  De Hoek: replacement (phase 1) and expansion (phase 3)  Riebeeck: replacement with some expansion (phase 2) 12 .
