HeidelbergCement has started production at its 0.7Mta CimBurkina grinding plant in Kossodo, Burkina Faso.

The EUR42m grinding facility will be supplied with clinker from HeidelbergCement’s new 1.5Mta plant in Tabligbo, Togo, currently under implementation. This Cimburkina plant is a partnership with two local businesses.

The latest addition to the Burkina production base sees three cement producers in the country. India-based Diamond Cement is market leader with a 60 per cent share while Morocco’s CIMAF also accounts for a considerable share.

"Our goal is to capture 25 per cent of the market and create a healthy competitive environment for balancing supply and demand," said CimBurkina CEO, Eric Goulignac.
