CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW CEMENT PLANT IN GARADAWA
Project manager: Ministry of Industry
Estimated cost (USD): USD 300 million
Estimated cost (FCFA): FCFA 150 billion
Since 2000, the Nigerien cement market has experienced an average annual growth of + 10% while its national production only covers 20%. Niger has a low cement production capacity and imports close to 70% of its annual needs from neighbouring countries. With a production of 950,000 tons, the new Garadawa cement plant will amply cover the country’s needs, contribute to lowering the cost of a ton of cement, which increases continuously year by year, and provide decent housing at affordable prices. This project is part of the Niger policy for economic stimulus through the use of natural resources to meet the Nigerien market’s cement needs.
- Meet strong cement demands for the Nigerien market
- Reduce dependence on products from sub-region markets;
- Export cement to neighbouring countries particularly Burkina Faso, Benin, and Togo;
- Enable the population to access decent housing at a lesser cost.
