Diamond Cement to establish jetty, Ghana

Diamond Cement Ghana Limited (DCGL) at Aflao is to put up a US$100m jetty at the coast of Aflao. It would facilitate the delivery of the importation of the company’s raw material mainly from the Far Eastern countries. The company currently receives its imports particularly clinker through the port in Lome, Togo.

Mr Chitti Babu, General Manager of DCGL in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at Aflao said a survey for a suitable location had been completed while feasibility studies were at an advanced stage. The company, he said, was also negotiating with Ghanaian authorities= to allow the DCGL to reconstruct the badly damaged five kilometer road linking the factory from the main Aflao highway.

Mr Babu said these measures were to ensure that the company, which currently produces 1.5Mta remained a key player in the industry
