Dangote to construct second cement factory in Cameroon

Before the end of 2015, the Dangote group will start building its second cement factory in Cameroon after the one in Douala with a 1.5-mtpa capacity of was launched a few months ago.

The Dangote group’s second cement factory in Cameroon, which will take 20 months to build, will cost 88 billion FCFA and is expected to have the same capacity as the factory in Douala.

This fifth cement factory in Cameroon after the Lafarge group’s Cimencam, the Addoha group’s Cimaf, the Dangote cement factory in Douala and the Turkish Eren Holdings’ factory, will be built by the Chinese company Sinoma, to “anticipate a new increase in the demand for cement in Cameroon and Central Africa,” for major infrastructural projects underway in that part of Africa, Aliko Dangote stated.
