BUA Group has signed a contract with Wartsila Oy of Finland for the construction of a 48 megawatt (Mw) power plant for Sokoto Cement line three in Sokoto State.
This is coming two months after the firm announced that it has signed a contract with world’s renowned cement manufacturing company, CBMI, for the construction of a new cement line in Sokoto State.
While the Executive Chairman/CEO, BUA Group, Abdul Samad Rabiu, signed for the group, the Head of Africa, Wartsila Oy, Magnus Miemois signed for the multinational company known to provide services for power suppliers, marine, cement and mining industries.
The BUA chief said the Group was attracted by the incredible track record of Wärtsilä, who has provided 1000Mw of electricity in Africa and has 70 GW of installed power plant capacity in 177 countries around the world. Rabiu, who expressed confidence in the construction of the ultra-modern power plant, said Sokoto Cement lines, when combined, have a total of about 100 Mw of captive power.
