Adétikopé Industrial Platform (PIA) construction works are at full speed. This was reported by the communication cell of the Presidency of the Republic of Togo following a recent site visit by Kodzo Adédzé, the Minister of Trade, Industry and Local Consumption, and Ms. Kayi Midevor, the Minister of Investment Promotion.
The PIA site is located north of Lomé, approximately 27 kilometers from the port of the Togolese capital, on a 400 ha piece of land.
About the project
The Adétikopé Industrial Platform project is developed through a joint venture company held by Arise IIP, a pan African ecosystem developer providing industrial ecosystems across Africa, contributing to the continent’s industrialization agenda and enhancing manufacturing competitiveness, and the Government of the Republic of Togo.
Representing a total investment of over US$ 245m, the project aims to create a logistics hub to industrialize the local processing of many Togolese products, particularly from agriculture, such as cotton, cashew nuts, soy, rice, and sesame, and thus facilitate their export.
Features of the future PIA
The PIA will include a parking lot for 700 trucks, storage space for 12,500 TEU containers, an unloading and transfer warehouse, a storage unit where cotton and other commodities will be kept, roads and right-of-ways, and a 200,000m2 area dedicated to other logistics activities.
It is expected to be operational from January this year for its first phase.
