Project initiator: Bunyonyi Safaris Ltd.
Project promoter: The Uganda Investment Authority (UIA)
Uganda-based Bunyonyi Safaris Ltd is seeking a strategic investor to extract limestone and establish a cement manufacturing plant. The company owns a limestone mine with substantial limestone deposits, which are expected to feed the cement plant. The venture will require technology to produce and bag cement. The project owner is interested in establishing a cement plant as well as a mini hydro power plant. There are waterfalls at River Kaku where the power turbine will be installed to produce the electricity required by the cement plant. Excess electricity will be supplied to the national power grid.
Over the last decade, demand for housing has increased in Uganda due to rising incomes and urbanisation. Consequently, there is an increased demand for building materials locally and in the East African region. The proposed cement plant intends to capture this market share.
