The Ambatovy project, plays a crucial role in global nickel and cobalt worldwide production. Two-thirds of the world's primary nickel ore is utilized in stainless steel and is increasingly important in electric vehicle production due to its use in heavy-duty batteries. The project has attracted substantial investment, totaling $8 billion, making it the largest foreign investment in Madagascar and one of the biggest in sub-Saharan Africa.

Situated 80km east of Antananarivo, Ambatovy encompasses two vast lateritic nickel deposits.

Constituting one of the world's largest reserves, spanning approximately 1600 hectares.
The project has atracted 8 Billion USD of investment in Madagascar
2014 Ambatovy achieved its first commercial production in 2014 and has exceeded its annual projections
