Management of Ashaka Cement Plc has concluded plans to build its own power plant due to concerns over an inadequate supply of electricity to power its operations.

Alhaji Suleiman Yahyah, Ashaka Cement's chairman, has said that the project is expected to reach completion within three years and will contribute its excess power to the national grid.

Mr Yahyah noted, “There will be diverse efficiency gains from 2016, for example, developments and operational initiatives, such as the use of lignite from the company’s coal mine at Maiganga, Gombe, and the planned capacity expansion which will more than double AshakaCem’s output in no distant future”.
