Nigeria: BUA Group has signed a contract with Finland’s Wartsila Oy for construction of a 48MW power plant for Line 3 at its Sokoto Cement plant in Sokoto State. The announcement of the deal follows BUA’s January 2019 announcement that China’s CBMI would build the new line at the site.

Abdul Samad Rabiu , the executive chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of BUA Group, signed on behalf of the group while Wartsila’s Head of Africa Magnus Miemois signed for the power plant provider.

BUA is Nigeria’s second-largest cement producer by volume, with assets that include the 6Mt/yr Obu Cement I & II plants in Okpella, Edo State, CCNN’s 1.5Mt/yr Kalambaina plant and the 0.5Mt/yr Sokoto cement plant.
