Background

In August of 2015, Dangote Cement inaugurated its new US$420 million cement plant in Ndola region, Zambia. The plant has a capacity of 3,000 tonnes per day production and its own 30 MW coal-fired power source. The new plant has the capacity for 2,400 bags per hour or 2,880 TPD. The plant’s only product will be a 42.5 grade cement which is meant to compete with the lower grade but dominant 32.5 products in the local Cooperbelt, DR Congo and Rwanda markets. Ndola cement plant also counts with total reserves of 240 million tonnes of limestone for production brought from mines in the Ndola region.[1]

Regarding the power source, 20 MW appears to be used for production while the 10 MW remaining is reserved for contingency. Dangote Cement is a Nigeria-based company that produces and exports cement in the African continent.[1]
