Construction of PPC’s new cement plant in Ethiopia is at an “advanced stage”, according to a recent trading update, with saleable cement production expected by 2Q17.

The new plant is located 35 km northwest of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital, and will have annual production capacity of 1.4 million t of cement, according to the company’s website.

Construction of the electrical infrastructure is now complete and the national utility company was expected to begin testing the system in early February. After power is available onsite, the kiln will be fired and hot commissioning can begin.
