Project Location; The project is Located at AT Wamakko L.G.A. Sokoto State.

 

About the Project

This document presents the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for the proposed BUA Cement Sokoto 4th Line Cement production expansion and associated 70 megawatts (MW) Gas-fired Power Plant Project in Wamakko Local Government Area, Sokoto State, Nigeria. The project aims at increasing the cement production capacity of BUA Cement Sokoto Plant from 5million MTPA, by adding a new 3million MTPA Portland Cement clinker Plant and a 70MW Power Plant, to provide the needed power for the non-kiln operations of the Cement Plant.
