Dangote Cement in Senegal
Our 1.5Mta factory in Pout, about 29km from Dakar, was commissioned at the end of December 2014. Before our entry the domestic market was almost entirely made up of 32.5-grade cement. Our plant produces 42.5-grade cement, thereby offering the domestic market higher quality cement at a competitive price, which the construction industry urgently needs.
With rich and abundant limestone reserves of 300 million tonnes, Senegal is a long-term strategic resource, given the general lack of limestone along the coast of West Africa.
With a population of 16 million, Senegal has good prospects for economic growth. The country has all the raw materials to produce enough cement and export to other countries in the ECOWAS trading zone. Dangote Cement’s investment is one of the biggest foreign direct investments by an African company in Senegal which is an indication of its strong belief in the future growth of its economy.
