Strategic Investor Needed for Progressive Cement Plant

Opportunity Snapshot

Investment Opportunity

Joint venture partnership offer for the establishment of an cement manufacturing plant in Ghana.

Ghanaian-based Progressive Mining & Construction Co. Ltd is seeking a strategic investor to extract limestone and establish a cement manufacturing plant. The company owns a limestone mine with substantial limestone deposits, which are expected to feed the cement plant. The venture will require technology to produce and bag cement. The project owner is interested in establishing a cement plant as well as a mini hydro power plant. There are waterfalls at Boti which formed the ponpon enclave where the power turbine will be installed to produce the electricity required by the cement plant. Excess electricity will be supplied to the national power grid.

Rationale for the deal

Consequently, there is an increased demand for building materials locally and in the West African sub region. The proposed cement plant intends to capture this market share.
