15 February 2019

Ashaka Cement Co is set to inaugurate a 16MW power plant project in Nigeria. Managing Director of Ashaka Cement, Rabiu Abdullah Umar, said the power plant costs US$30.5m.

"We are helping to remove ourselves from the demand for energy, and providing our own solution, which means a minimum of 16MW of electricity, will now become available to the public grid for the people in the region to enjoy from," said Mr Abdullah Umar.

"The power plant, infrastructure, and cement capacity are all testament to this commitment. We are celebrating a good year and look forward to even better collaboration in 2019," he added.

Ashaka Cement is located in Gombe and recently announced a 2.5Mta expansion of its plant.
