Cameroon: contract with Lafarge
In the difficult environment of the northern Cameroons and faced with very strong competition, Schneider Electric equipped the Lafarge cement works’ furnace drive sutiated in Figuil. This success also provided a reference in the cement engineering sector.
This investment is part of a wave of modernizations and capacity expansions of Lafarge cement works in West and Central Africa begun three years ago. The plants at Bonaberi and Figuil in the Cameroon (monitoring and control and automation), and also the Onigbolo plant in Benin (monitoring and control, LV/MV electrical distribution) have already been renovated in partnership with Schneider Electric.
