Morocco’s Ciments de L’Afrique (Cimaf) is close to inaugurating its Ouagadougou plant in Burkina Faso. The 0.5Mta works represents an investment of XOF25bn (US$40m), according to local press reports.

Cimaf will be able to double its capacity to 1Mta under the right market conditions and also export, according to the CEO of the group, Anas Sefrioiui.

It is the fourth cement plant to start up in the west African country, after Diamond Cement (owned by India’s Wacem), HeidelbergCement’s CimBurkina and Cimfaso, which is controlled by local investor Inoussa Kanazoé.
