One of Ethiopia’s largest cement companies, National Cement Share Company, has contracted ASEC Engineering and Management to provide full technical assistance for the operation and maintenance of a cement plant with a production capacity of 1 million tpy of clinker.
ASEC Engineering will utilise its knowhow and expertise to assist National Cement Share Company to increase production volumes, reduce production costs, and improve product quality. ASEC Engineering will also introduce and implement systems for all aspects of production, quality, maintenance, warehousing and human resources, among other areas. The company’s scope of work will cover extensive training for Ethiopian staff through the prestigious ASEC Academy training programmes and courses.
The one-year contract is renewable for an additional five-year period.
In addition to other regional contracts, ASEC Engineering operates and maintains 10 cement production lines across seven Egyptian plants representing ~ 25% of total cement production in the country.
“This contract with National Cement Share Company is a result of the continued efforts of ASEC Engineering and its ambitious plans to expand its business into Sub-Saharan Africa after its successful contract with Cimento Nacional Company in Mozambique,” said ASEC Engineering CEO Khaled El Sebaie.
