09 November 2018

BUA Cement has announced the completion of its new 3Mta cement plant in Okpella, Edo state, Nigeria. Its output is expected to be delivered to the southern and southeastern Nigerian markets, enabling the company to gain a stronger foothold in these areas.

The Okpella facility will be able to be fuelled with gas and heavy oils. 

The company is expected to announce a date for the formal inauguration of the works, of which the completion comes less than six months after the inauguration of its 1.5Mta Kalambaina cement plant in Sokoto state. The new works, which is expected to start up in January 2019, brings the company’s total capacity to 8Mta.

In separate news, the company is working towards reducing the price of its cement, according to Nasir Ladin, general manager of BUA. However, high energy and transportation costs would be limiting factors.
