Morocco-based CIMAF plans to build a 0.3Mta cement plant at Bouaké, northern Côte dIvoire.

"The Bouaké plant has a capacity of 300,000t. We have acquired the land and are preparing the permits to start construction," said Khalid Iben Khayat, CIMAF’s regional director.

CIMAF started its first plant project in the country in November 2011. The 0.5Mta works, which represents an investment of XOF20bn (US$36.4m), entered operation in August 2013. The company invested a further XOF80bn in doubling the capacity of the Abidjan plant in April 2016. More recently, in November 2017 the company started the construction works of its 1Mta production facility in San Pedro, in the southwest of the country, taking total group capacity to 2Mta.
