Nairobi: Savannah Cement completes plant upgrade

12 January 2017

Savannah Cement has resumed full-scale operations following a major plant overhaul closure over the festive season.

Savannah Cement MD Ronald Ndegwa said the festive season closure was undertaken to ensure that customer interests in the local and export markets are upheld.

Ndegwa added that, “crucial mechanical parts of the cement grinding mill have been replaced to boost production efficiency and maintain the highest quality.”

Ndegwa further confirmed that plans to double the factory’s production capacity are now underway.

The dust-free Savannah Cement Factory in Athi River, is East Africa’s most eco-friendly and production efficient cement-manufacturing complex.

The factory features a combination of roller press and V-separator technology before the mill making the production plant one of the most energy-efficient in Sub-Sahara Africa.

Savannah Cement is not only designed to make the best use of green technology, but is also focused on revolutionising environmental management in the regional cement industry.

Strategically, Savannah Cement aspires to be the cement manufacturer company of choice in the region and is actively engaged in Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan in addition to the home market.
