BUA Cement test-runs new facilities at Okpella plant



Less than six months after commissioning its 1.5 million mtpa Kalambaina Cement Plant in Sokoto State, BUA Cement, has announced the completion of its new MTPA Obu II plant in Okpella, Edo State. The new plant would bring the total capacity of BUA Obu cement operations to six million tonnes and move BUA Group’s installed capacity to eight million MTPA.

A statement by BUA Group also said a date for the commissioning of the new plant would be announced soon. Speaking at a business forum recently, Abdul Samad Rabiu, Founder and Executive Chairman of BUA Group, owners of BUA Cement, said the completion of BUA’s Obu Cement second line puts BUA Cement in prime position to be Nigeria’s second largest cement producers by volume in a short while. According to him, “Through a strategic combination of BUA Cement’s newer, more energy efficient plants and the proximity of our factory locations to key regional markets across Nigeria, BUA Cement has in no time become the industry leader in capacity utilisation as well as maintaining a strong presence and brand leadership position in regional markets where it operates. “The nature of the formulation of BUA Cement’s products and the product strength has seen it dubbed, “King of Strength,” by block makers as well as others in the construction industry in Nigeria,” he added.

In addition, BUA Cement had also entered into a partnership with Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) and Industrial Training Fund (ITF) to train thousands of block makers across Nigeria on the proper mix and techniques for block making to reduce the rates of building collapse in Nigeria. The completion of the new three million MTPA BUA Obu II Cement Plant, would see BUA’s installed capacity rise to eight million metric tons by the time it fully becomes operational in December 2018.
