I've enjoyed sharing views with you for some years and hope to stumble across you on future sites. Almost went t&&s up with IFL but have learnt a lot since then. Good luck with future ventures mate. (This sounds like an obituary!)
anirek I understand that a genset may well be used to run the Dangote factory by General Electrics not by the grid as GE has agreed to suppy gensets to all Dangotes factories in Africa , also run on gas ,
Nice find and great post, brimming with gusto. However, just to put in perspective the scale of the new cement plant, this is about the smallest cement plant it is possible to build. And it will - as far as we know - be powered by electricity from the grid, not VOG.
A very fair analysis. You don't need telling, however, that the grinding poverty exacerbated by exponential population growth throughout Africa needs watching all the time. Paul Biya et cie, are no exception to self-enrichment whilst the majority sinks. He has his Swiss stash and Chantal splashes out in Harrods during each visit. He and his cadres, the chosen few, are doing very nicely. Eventually the bubble will burst.
I do not have first-hand back up on him but can cite a parallel example in Zim, Dear Robert.
The" new positive voger"..catch up! ..we have(cyan) just had one..and not due one for a year,if ever......Can vog say the same? Sold out now completely..GL all you longtermers..I hope Kev does you proud. :)
Good evening forest4032. I read the board most days but don't post as I have nothing to add the general debate that will help.... But I will post something when I'm at my break even if only to encourage those who have also been hunkered down in shell holes and bunkers waiting. It has been encouraging to me this evening reading through some of the replies from others in the same position who have had it rough with VOG. I have always believed it is a good company in good hands......Not always well run, but generally well run in a difficult and nascent environment. Despite my (temporary) paper loss I am still grateful for the tip all those years ago..... the whole thing has been very interesting actually. I used to think that the Cameroon was a just a jungle where Gerald Durrell caught all the animals for his zoo and that a scuff was something on your shoe. Now, I even know that the country is named after all the shrimp in the river Wouri!!! Whatever. Anyway all you Vets, well done for hanging on with such good grace (most of the time). Well done Kevin Foo for having the cahones to try and do something amazing even if you have had to tuck us up a few times on the way..... I don't suppose you had an awful lot of choice. Good luck for tomorrow and the remainder of the week...
