An additional project that has also been completed is the Dangote Fertiliser Plant, which was commissioned on March 22, 2022. The plant cost $US 2.5 billion and occupies 500 hectares of land thereby making it the largest granulated urea plant in Africa and second-largest in the World according to Aliko Dangote, CEO of Dangote Industries Limited. The project team included Sapiem as its Main Contractor, a renowned engineering company with major projects in the engineering and infrastructure sectors.
Below is a brief update on the projects, their updated completion dates, and capacities:
Overall, the completion of these different projects is expected to positively affect the GDP of the country by reducing imports and increasing exports. This can be seen from their expected outputs; the fertiliser plant adds 3 million metric tonnes of fertiliser daily, the refinery adds 650,000 barrels of crude daily, and the deep sea port would aid exports and imports with 2.7 million TEUs per annum.
