About Nyumba ya Akiba Cement:
The Nyumba ya Akiba Cement plant part of the Cement & Concrete Product Manufacturing Industry and is the first new cement factory to be built in the DRC for over 40 years. The project involves the construction and operation of a greenfield cement manufacturing plant with a production capacity of 1.2 million tons per annum (tpa) in the Bas Congo province of the DRC. It will be the largest producer of cement in the country. The project includes the development of an opencast limestone quarry providing raw material, overburden storage facilities, ground cement storage silos, waste management facilities, access and roads, and employee accommodations.
The project is expected to increase the supply of domestically produced, competitively priced, cement for the local market and reduce dependence on imports. NYA is committed to supporting communities in western DRC. The project company has built a school, bridges and solar water pumps and is providing livelihood training for local farmers. The company is also supporting construction of a new health centre at Mawete.
