Leading global and multi-industry advisory, research and business intelligence boutique CW Group has successfully concluded a feasibility study regarding the construction of a cement plant in the horn of Africa for a sovereign Middle Eastern investment fund.

The study included the development of strategic options and the evaluation of the feasibility of constructing a cement plant. Additionally, CW Group assessed the returns and evaluated the attractiveness of building either an integrated cement plant or a grinding unit in a relatively untouched territory in the horn of Africa.

“Once approached by a sovereign Middle Eastern investment fund, CW Advisory had the opportunity to prove, once again, its extensive know-how of the cement industry along with its unmatched network. These two factors combined allowed us to provide specific insights and as a result we delivered a feasibility study for the construction of a cement plant in a remote location in the horn of Africa, with a very short turnaround period of less than three weeks,” underlines Robert Madeira, Managing Director and Head of Research at CW Group.

Supported by CW Group’s extensive experience in both light- and heavy-side building materials – particularly the cement segment – traditional and renewable power & energy, among many other fields of expertise, the study combined the Group’s multi-oriented approach and extensive expert network to deliver the client a unique assessment of challenges and opportunities in the increasingly competitive cement landscape.
