Zimbabwe: Lafarge to upgrade cement works

Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe is to upgrade its plant to increase capacity from 390 000 to 450 000 tonnes per annum.

The plant upgrade will cost between $15 million and $20 million, Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe chief executive Amal Tantawi said.

“Lafarge has a nominal capacity. We could produce up to 450 000 tonnes but we do have some challenges that we are working on. Beyond that we want to stabilise and be able to reach our maximum capacity, but that will not come before 2016,” he said.

“The challenges that we are facing are the grinders for the cement that cannot reach this capacity, but we are looking at installing new grinders by 2016. Once we put this upgrade, we will be able to operate at maximum capacity of 450 000 tonnes,” Tantawi said.
