Dangote Cement’s 6Mta plant in Calabar, Cross-River state is expected to be completed in July, Alhaji Aliko Dangote Chairman of the company has said.
Mr Dangote said the plant was almost completed and will be ready within 60 days. Its strategic location means that it will serve the domestic market of Nigeria as well as nearby markets such as Cameroon and Gabon.
He added that with the planned expansion of the Ibese cement works (Nigeria)with another two 3Mta lines, the 11 June commissioning of the Obajana plant Line 3 and groundbreaking of Line 4, as well as operations in 14 other African countries, Dangote’s cement capacity will hit 60Mt in the next three years. Of this volume, 55 per cent would serve the domestic market while the rest will be for export to other sub-Saharan African countries. (Source: AllAfrica News)
