Thermax is operating and maintaining power plants in Senegal and Zambia. Both plants of 30 MW each, generate power for captive use in cement plants built by Dangote Industries.
Thermax deputed teams of 39 and 32 engineers respectively at Senegal and Zambia. They take care of the plants with their twin AFBC boilers of 60 TPH each and balance-of-plant. The scope includes manpower, chemicals, consumables and lubricants. Both sites deploy local workers. Thermax has implemented local labour laws, minimum wages and other statutory compliances.
In the French speaking Senegal, the company’s operations are conducted through its subsidiary, Thermax Senegal Sarl.
Earlier in August 2015, the 1.5 MMTPA cement and the 30 MW power plant at Zambia had been inaugurated by the Zambian President, Edgar Chagwa Lungu, in the presence of dignitaries from Nigeria and Zambia.
