The three factories represent an investment of US$38 million by Acail Angola, a subsidiary of Portuguese group Acail, and are intended to provide a competitive, constant, and stable supply of products to the Angolan market.
One of the units will produce concrete posts for low, medium, and high voltage electricity cables.
The factory, which is designed to produce 16,000 posts per year, also plans to produce large concrete tubes for sanitation and water distribution, and expects to produce 12,000 tubes per year.
At the Viana Industrial hub, Acail Angola will produce cold-rolled steel, welded steel mesh in rolls and panels, as well as reinforced steel bars for foundation piles. The company also plans to set up a production line for precision cutting of steel plates.
The third factory will produce gases for medicinal, food and industrial uses, specifically liquid medicinal oxygen, up to an installed capacity of 25,000 litres per day.
The Acail group started operating in Angola in March 2006, by selling steel products, cement, and industrial, medicinal and cooking gases.
