Mr. Giorgio Bodo, CEO of ASEC CIMENT ALGERIE said that the completion of the cement plant of Djelfa is marked as the first agreement with IFC, and ASEC CEMENT intends to deepen its partnership with this institution in future projects.

This investment will accordingly help develop the cement industry in the country. IFC hope that this will encourage more investment in Algeria. The production capacity of cement will be 3.1 million tonnes annually, while the project will require an investment estimated at 550 million USD.

According to ASEC CIMENT ALGERIE, the contracts for the project of Djelfa have been signed with Danish cement equipment supplier FLSmidth and a sister company of the group, namely ASEC Automation and electrical wiring for ASEC Engineering Steering project.

Mr. Bodo said that the output of the cement plant Djelfa will be aimed primarily at the local market.
