Africa’s cement market is getting more competitive with new commissioning plants and launch of several others.
Last month, Ciments de l’Afrique’s (CIMAF) commissioned a €60 million new cement plant in Tema, Ghana with the capacity to produce 1 million metric tonnes of cement per annum. Previously, the Moroccan cement giant also launched the construction of a new cement plant in Bouake, Côte d’Ivoire, at an estimated cost of €20 million. This is CIMAF’s third production site in Côte d’Ivoire – with two existing plants in the capital Abidjan. The new factory is projected to have a production output of approximately 350,000 tonnes per year – making the group the number one cement producer (2.3 million tonnes) in the region.
