Billionaire Gautam Adani’s Adani Group is in advanced discussions with debt-ridden Jaiprakash Power Ventures Limited to purchase its cement production facility.

The ports-to-power conglomerate might spend around Rs 5,000 crore ($606 million) for a cement grinding unit and other minor assets, according to a report by ET NOW.

The acquisition would be made by one of the cement units recently acquired by Asia’s richest person, with an announcement coming as early as this week. While conversations are progressing, they might yet be delayed or break apart, according to the report.

The transaction will help to strengthen the Adani Group’s sudden dominance in the cement sector, which began in May when it purchased Ambuja Cements Limited and ACC Limited from Switzerland’s Holcim Limited, becoming India’s second-largest cement maker with an installed production capacity of 67.5 million tonnes per year.

The cement grinding plant has a yearly capacity of 2 million tonnes. It commenced operations in October 2014 at Nigrie, Madhya Pradesh, and has a capacity of 2 million tonnes per year.
