Dangote to commission Zambia power plant by end-1Q14
Published: 18 December 2013


The Dangote Group will commission a US$50m power plant in the first quarter of 2013 to supply its factory currently under construction in Ndola, Zambia

Anand Kameshwar, company senior general manager responsible for the project told the Times of Zambia that construction of the power plant was progressing well and the power plant will start operating by the end of the first quarter of 2014. “This plant is intended at making its own power available to the cement plant as opposed to connecting to the usually overloaded national grid,” he said.

Kameshwar added that the cement plant is expected to be fully operational in 2014.
