Entreprise des Ciments et Dérivés d’El Chellif (ECDE), member of the industrial group Ciments d’Algérie (GICA) and Fives FCB, member of the French industrial group Fives, implemented in March 2014 the coming into force of the contract related to the third production line of the Chlef cement plant, located 200 km away on the West area of Algiers.

This contract includes the execution on a turnkey basis of a new 6,000 tpd clinker production extension line, scheduled to be operating end of 2016.

This project constitutes a major step in the ambitious program of GICA group regarding the development of cement production capacities in Algeria. This will enable ECDE to nearly double the existing production capacities and represents for Fives FCB the opportunity to pursue and to intensify its existing collaboration with the Algerian cement industry.
