Dangote Cement - July 2015
Dangote Cement has announced plans to construct a second cement plant in Cameroon, at a cost of US$150m. According to local press, the new factory will be located in Yaounde and will have a production capacity of 1.5Mta. Along with the company’s existing plant in Douala, this second investment will take Dangote’s total capacity in the country to more than 3Mta. With huge infrastructure investments in the pipeline in Cameroon and the surrounding countries, Dangote hopes the new plant will go some way to meet the rising demand for cement.
