CNBM-CONSTRUCTED ZAMBIA INDUSTRIAL PARK MAINTAINS STABLE OPERATION, CONTRIBUTES TO LOCAL INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT

THE Zambia Industrial Park constructed by China National Building Material Group Co., Ltd. (CNBM) three years ago in Chiyeya, 19 kilometres away from Zambia’s capital Lusaka, has grown into a signboard for Africa’s international cooperation.

It not only satisfies Zambia’s demand for high-quality building materials in the country’s infrastructure construction but also sets an example for mutually beneficial cooperation that stresses efficiency, quality, environment and responsibility.

As the largest modern cement plant on the African continent, the Zambia Industrial Park has launched all the products of its phase-one project in the market. It offers around 400 jobs for the local community and has significantly boosted local industrial development including transportation, packaging and relevant service sectors.

The industrial park covers an area of around 350 hectares. It has four production lines that are capable of producing a million tons of clinker cement, 60 million sintered bricks, 700,000 tons of aggregate and 200,000 cubic meters of concrete on an annual basis.

Actively fulfilling its social responsibilities, the industrial park has received high recognition from local governments and organizations. Since the construction of the industrial park commenced, it has donated a hospital and a school to the local community and contributed to a Zambian AIDS prevention and control foundation. Besides, it also built roads and drilled wells for local residents, offered them solar-powered lighting facilities and drainage systems, donated to local orphanages and helped with local COVID-19 control.

The Zambia Industrial Park will build itself into a comprehensive base for construction materials that radiate the entire Southeast Africa. With a plan to extend its industrial chain and enrich its product lines, the second-phase project of the industrial park will establish cement production lines and launch other high-tech construction material products according to the demands of the Zambian market, and carry out international trade businesses of construction materials.

 

中国建材赞比亚工业园平稳运维 助力本地产业发展

 

在距离赞比亚首都卢萨卡东南19公里左右的Chiyeya地区,非洲大陆的现代化水泥工厂——中国建材赞比亚工业园正井然运转,成功实现三年的平稳运维。截至目前,一期所有产品已投放市场,建成后直接为当地解决就业约400人,拉动了汽车运输、材料包装、服务业等周边产业发展。

它已然成长为非洲的一张国际化名片,不仅满足了赞比亚基础设施建设对高质量建材产品的需求,同时以高效率、高质量、重环保、履责任的“名片”成为互利合作的典范。

这座综合性建材园区占地约350公顷,由中国建材集团旗下中材水泥有限责任公司投资建设。工业园主要用于生产水泥、混凝土、烧结砖、骨料、机制砂、石粉等产品,已投产项目包括一条年产100万吨熟料水泥生产线、一条年产6000万块烧结砖生产线、一条年产70万吨骨料生产线及一条年产20万立方米混凝土生产线。

工业园自开工建设以来,还通过捐建医院和学校、为艾滋病资金会捐赠、为周边居民打井修路、提供太阳能照明设施和供排水系统、为孤儿院捐赠用品、帮助防控疫情等多种方式践行社会责任,得到当地政府和机构认可。

按照未来发展规划,工业园将致力于辐射整个东南部非洲的综合性建材产业基地。二期建设的主要思路是延伸产业链及丰富产品结构,提高工业园“高精尖”的技术含量,计划根据赞比亚市场需求择机建设水泥生产线、其他高科技建材产品并开展建材产品国际贸易业务。
