  SEFICS
SEFICS has its own rolling fleet
"Société d'Exploitation Ferroviaire des ICS" (Railway System, SEFICS): a lifeline between DAROU and DAKAR

SEFICS is a subsidiary of the ICS Group. It is in charge of transporting materials and products between the different industrial sites (TAÏBA, DAROU, MBAO and the Dakar Port Terminal).

Due to the distance between the mine and acid production sites, rail transportation of raw materials in one direction and finished products in the other is vital for the company, which has therefore equipped itself to ensure sufficient self-reliance.

Description
SEFICS uses the railway system of the Société TRANSRAIL, to which it pays a toll fees. Its rolling fleet, which carries an average of some 2 000 000 tons per annum, is made up of:
  • 8 locomotives,
  • 8 trackmobiles,
  • 293 cars, hoppers and tanks.
Address:
Site Engrais (MBAO)
Km 18, Route de Rufisque
BP 3835, Dakar

  The Port: ICS's window on the world
 

The activities of ICS's port terminal essentially involve unloading imported raw materials (sulphur, boracine, and potash) and loading exported ICS products (marketable phosphate and fertilizer).

 

It should be noted that ammonia is imported and phosphoric acid (P2O5) is exported through sea lines, from the Mbao Site.
