Dangote, the Congo plant and the imperative of African industrialization

The Dangote Group of Nigeria, one of the pre-eminent industrial conglomerates in Africa, in pursuit of its pan-African development and emancipation strategy, on November 23, 2017 formally launched its newest economic development industrial project, the Dangote Cement plant in Mfila, in Congo-Brazzaville. With this $300 million dollars, 1.5 million metric tonne per annum plant, the Group now has a presence in ten of the 17 countries in which it plans to construct and expand cement plans.  While it had to re-calibrate the pace and timing of its earlier ambitious plans to complete its various planned plants at an earlier date, because of the economic down turn in Nigeria from 2014, the completion of the Congo plant indicates that the Group’s Pan-African cement plant’s expansion and new plants’ construction programme is still very much on course even though the pace of completion is now staggered over a longer time frame. read more

Renewable energy, critical to meeting Africa’s energy needs by 2040

Africa, filled with many developing nations, provides the ideal opportunity for the application of renewable energy solutions and technologies.  About 635 million Africans still live without electricity and demand for energy is rising rapidly.   Given the lack of power supply, especially in the rural regions of the continent, the growth and demand for applications of small-scale solar, wind and geothermal technologies providing power to people and business, is rapidly expanding.    The use of renewable technologies is especially useful in the further and outlying areas as it is easier to install a more cost-effective solution in order to be less reliant on transporting electricity from power plants via transmission lines, which becomes very expensive.  Renewable energy has the potential to substantially assist many African countries and their people to have access to energy, essential for the reduction of poverty and to ensure economic growth. read more

Video surveillance demand to increase as South Africa gets more data centre infrastructure

Mimicking global trends, South Africa can expect an increased demand for cloud storage on the back of several trends including Microsoft’s recent Azure announcement. It is estimated that more than 50% of global information is now housed in a cloud and according to Brent Cary, regional sales manager, Genetec Inc., a leading innovator of open architecture, IP-based security systems, this trend will continue through sub-Saharan Africa. He says that the physical security industry will see an increased demand for video surveillance as a result of the local cloud storage options. This high demand for cloud-based storage, he says, is largely related to an increase in enterprise data and this trend will propel the sector as a whole forward for another five years. read more
