Extremely challenging plant location
The most advanced industrial project in the country
The OCP Group and the Ethiopian Government’s Chemical Industry Corporation (CIC) have entered into a joint venture aimed at development of a mega world-class project in Dire Dawa Industrial Park, Ethiopia for manufacturing Granular Urea and NPS / NPKS products by having captive Ammonia, Power Plant and Utilities using local Ethiopian Natural Gas and underground Water as well as Phosphoric acid, Sulfuric acid and Potash imports from OCP, Morocco via Djibouti Port. This will help integrate the resources of both the partners viz. the OCP Group and the Ethiopian Government for producing the world class valuable fertilizer products.
This project will cater to local Ethiopian fertilizers demand while reducing corresponding imports, thus ensuring local food security and socio-economic development in the region. This Project will also generate forex reserves and profits by way of exports to nearby African and Asian markets.
