Dangote Cement Opens 1.5 MTPA cement plant in Congo

Posted on : 01 Feb, 2018

 

Africa’s major cement company Dangote Cement has recently opened a 1.5mtpa capacity cement plant in Mfila, Congo.

Estimated to cost $300 million, the cement plant more than doubled the total cement production capacity of Congo-Brazzaville, which now stands at 2.550 million metric tonnes per annum, far in excess of national demand.

The plant which is now the largest in Congo will enable the availability and affordability of cement in the country and reduce its dependence on cement imports to meet demand.  It can also help Congo to conserve its foreign exchange that would otherwise have been spent on imports for the country. 

At the end of May 2017, Dangote Cement’s total annual production capacity across Africa stood at 45.8 million metric tonnes. It is already one of the biggest cement producers in Africa and aspires to be among the top 10 cement producers in the world by 2020. 

Dangote cement commissioned its cement plants in four African countries namely: Ethiopia, Zambia, Cameroun and Tanzania. The Congo-Brazzaville plant, which began operations in the third quarter of 2017, will be the fifth cement plant that it commissioned in the last two years.

CMT’s 10th Africa CemenTrade Summit on 18-19 April, 2018 in Dakar, SENEGAL discusses Africa’s cement production capacities in more detail.
