New Moroccan cement works planned

A cement works with a production capacity of 1 million tonnes costs an average MAD 1.5 million (€133.78 million) and takes at least 36 months to construct.

Ciments du Maroc plans to open a new cement works in Tetouan, while Lafarge Ciments is pursuing a project to install a new cement works in Taroudant. The Awka Group plans to open its first cement facility in Sidi Bibi near Agadir. Cimat (Ciments de l’Atlas) is installing a new crusher in Nador close to an existing facility operated by Holcim Maroc. However, Ynna Asment (Ynna Holding) has delayed the opening of its first cement plant.
