Aliko Dangote has commissioned the expansion of his Obajana cement plant, raising capacity to 10.5Mta.

The additional 5.25Mta line is part of the company’s efforts to make it a powerhouse of African production as it aims to reach 50Mt of capacity across the continent by 2015.

Dangote said that this recent investment in this new Line No 3 at the Obajana plant situated in Kogi state, raises the company’s domestic capacity in Nigeria to 28Mt.

Nigerian president Goodluck Johnson presided over the commissioning ceremony which also marked the groundbreaking ceremony for the 3Mt Line 4 at the plant.
