A 20 ha. commercial property has been secured at the Futila Industrial Zone (Futila), 12 km from the Port of Cabinda and 25 km from the Port of Caio, delivering barge and shipping access to key agricultural growing zones in Angola and the region.
Phosphate rock will be shipped from the Cácata Phosphate deposit to Futila, 120 minutes by dual carriageway.
The Futila Industrial Zone is an emerging economic hub with access to stable grid power, the water network and a new gas pipeline and oil refinery to fuel the fertilizer dryer.
The site is approximately three times larger than what is required for a 500 000 tpy granulation plant (<30% of the total property area), allowing space for the future construction of an NPK blending plant and container storage area.
The container storage area can hold up to 4 months product (50 000 t or approximately 2500 containers).
