Algeria: Cevital to build 8Mta cement plant
24 July 2014

The Cevital group, owned by Issad Hebrab, plans to build a greenfield cement plant in Algeria. The country’s National Investment Council has validated the project and technical studies have started, according to Mr Hebrab in El Watan.

Located in El Khroub, Wilaya, the cement works is expected to produce 8Mta in the long term. In 36 months, the first phase of construction will result in a production capacity of 4Mta, followed a year later by an additional 4Mta. The cement plant will be supplied with raw materials by the group’s subsidiary Cevital Minerals.

“Our production is destined to meet the needs of the local market. But our forecasts are around 50 per cent, with 4Mta going to the local market and the rest destined for exports,” said Mr Hebrab.
