Ciments de l’Afrique (CIMAF) on Tuesday inaugurated the completed expansion of its cement unit at Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire in the presence of the country’s Prime Minister, Daniel Kablan Duncan.

The project included the construction of a clinker silo, new raw material buildings, a grinding unit and cement storage and will take the plant’s total capacity from 0.5Mta to 1Mta. The project represents an investment of XOF20bn (US$33m). As a result, Côte d’Ivoire’s total cement capacity increases to 4.65Mta.

In addition, the company will build a new 1Mta cement plant in San Pedro, in the southwest of the west African country. The XOF35bn project is expected to start in 2017.
