Construction started on second Chad cement works
17 June 2014

Chad’s president, Idriss Déby Itno, launched the construction of a second cement plant on a 10ha site in Ndajemena, north of the country’s capital. It will help to end cement imports said Anas Sefrioui, president and CEO of Addoha, which is building the works.

Financed by Morocco’s Ciment de l’Afrique-Tchad the EUR30m new cement works will have a capacity of 5000tpd with the option to expand to 1Mta and is expected to come online in December 2015.

Chad currently has one cement plant at Baoré in the west of the country. Built by China’s CAMCE, the factory is not able to meet growing market demand as it only produces 200,000tpa, leaving a 500,000tpa shortfall.
