To tap the growing demand of cement in the country, Ambuja Cements is expanding its cargo fleet by adding three ships by next year for an investment of Rs 150 crore for the internal movement of the construction material. At present, the company has a fleet of seven cargo ships for domestic as well as export use. "Seeing the demand in the country and the cost and problems faced in transporting cement through the surface route, we have decided to primarily opt for sea traffic. To consolidate our strength, we will add three cargo ships to our existing fleet by 2009-end," Managing Director A L Kapur said. The first of the ships was expected to be delivered during this year, while the remaining two would be delivered next year, he added. The ships were being manufactured here by a domestic company, Kapur said, adding "Only the engines were imported." He said two ships would cost Rs 52 crore each, whereas one would be for Rs 44 crore. "Two ships will have carrying capacity of 4,000 DWT (deadweight tonnage) and one will be of 2,800 DWT," Kapur said. The ships would primarily cater to cement distribution for the domestic market. The company currently exports 1.2-1.4 million tonnes of cement annually and plans to cut down it in the future. As Domestic demand is accelerating.
