Another investment of N$ 150 million by Ohorongo Cement was confirmed with a ceremonial groundbreaking event for a Special Composite Cement Plant at the Ohorongo Sargberg Plant today.

The event was officiated by the Hon. Obeth Kandjoze, Minister of Mines & Energy at the Ohorongo Sargberg Cement Plant today.

At present, Ohorongo Cement supplies the Namibian market and export market with only 3 different product types.

In order to meet the increasing demand for additional cement types, a new production unit is required, a so called Special Composite Cement Plant, hence the further investment.

The new production unit will allow Ohorongo to produce various other types of consistent high quality cement, in line with Vision 2030 and NDP4.

A new packaging line will allow to pack different SKU’s, both 50kg and bulk.

Some facts about the new Composite Cement Plant:

  • Total Investment: NAD 150 Million
  • Height of new plant: 41 meters
  • Total steel: 917 tons

The sophisticated technology will be done in accordance with the supplier’s specification.

Namibian workforce will be trained for 9 months by the supplier specialists at the plant to further the transfer of skills & knowledge.
