Dangote is expected to commission its new cement factory in Ndola in July this year, senior general manager for Dangote Projects, Anand Kameshwar, has indicated.

In an interview with All Africa news, Kameshwar said installation of major equipment at the plant by Sinoma Engineering of China was nearly complete. "Most of the major equipment has been installed and the project is on course and should be complete by July," he said.

The company is also constructing a 30MW power substation that would become operational in May this year and will provide electricity to the cement plant.
