Due to the nature of the manufacturing the Group undertakes, ensuring constant energy supply is the topmost priority

Captive Power Generation

A constant power supply is a key input and a major cost in the manufacturing process. We make sure that operational performance is crucial to our cement plant's overall productivity, directly affecting end products.

Dangote Cement recently signed an agreement to deploy GE's Asset Performance Management (APM) digital solution to reduce unplanned downtime and enhance performance at its two cement plants in Obajana and Ibese, Nigeria.

The project includes extending the current service agreement for an additional 50,000 operating hours for the seven GE LM6000PC aero-derivative gas turbines installed at the sites. GE’s total plant solutions will improve efficiency, reliability essential to continuous operations and the plants’ business strategy.

The Group provides captive power supply to all of its cement plants in Nigeria and Pan Africa, the power generation has capacities to supply energy to neighboring cities, town, and states.
