Following ICR’s news yesterday’s about Angola’s new Cimenfort factory, due to launch production in May, it is now reported that a second line will be built at the plant.

Angolan news agency Angop reported that in a second phase the cement factory would be expanded by installing another kiln, which would increase production to 1.2Mta.

The factory, which is the result of an investment of US$100m by Angolan company Genea Angola, which operates in the real estate and construction sector, is currently receiving Chinese equipment, the officials said.

The board of directors of Cimenfort, a unit which will have an initial production capacity of 720,000tpa, plans to use the facilities offered by the Benguela railroad to place much of its production in the southern Angola market.
