A US$548 million cement plant is to be built in Zambia, the country’s President Edgar Lungu, said on a recent visit to the country’s copper mining region, as part of plans to diversify the economy away from its current dependence on the industrial metal.

The plant will be constructed in a joint venture between Zambia’s mining investment company, Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines Investment Holdings (ZCCM-IH) and Chinese engineering company, Sinoconst.

According to President Lungu, the plant will be completed in three years and have a capacity of 5000 tpd. Two 20 MW coal-fired power plants will also be construction to provide power to the plant. The plant will be located in Ndola, about 400 km north of the country’s capital, Lusaka.
