The Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics (LADOL) is set to focus on providing infrastructure for non-petroleum industries in its next phase of development.

It targets areas such as agriculture, technology, finance, healthcare, education and the sustainable companies in these sectors looking to service West Africa, one of the fastest growing markets in the world.

LADOL is West Africa’s first sustainable industrial Free Zone.

Founded in 2001, LADOL has attracted $5OO million in private investment and is a blueprint for sustainable industrialisation and private sector led growth in the region.

The base is now home to the onIy fully integrated deep offshore logistics base in Nigeria and the largest ship yard in West Africa, having the costs associated with deep offshore petroleum operations in the area.

LADOL Free Zone offers a range of facilities and services that are available to companies operating onsite 24/y, from ship building and maintenance to training and hotel accommodations.

LADOL’s development, which has created 2000 jobs directly and has the potential to establish a further 50,000 through the multiplier effect on ancillary businesses, proves that Nigeria can support some of the most complex industrial engineering projects in the world.

LADOL’s next phase of development will focus on providing infrastructure for non-petroleum industries and the sustainable companies in these sectors looking to service West Africa, one of the fastest growing markets in the world.

Its mission is to create a circular industrial ecosystem which supports high value industrial activity in key sectors of the Nigerian economy.
