Tratos wins Ethiopian DAM contract

Tratos Cavi Spa has been awarded the multi million pound contract to supply the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam with Low voltage and High voltage cable.

The new EEPCO (Ethiopa Electric and Power Corporation) dam, which is due to be completed in 2017, is located on the Nile River in North Western Ethiopia and will be the largest in Africa with the capacity to hold up to 66 billion cubic metres of water and generate15, 100 Giga WH per year. It will feature two powerhouses at the foot of the dam, one either side of the river, housing ten and five Turbine Units each.

Tratos was awarded this prestigious contract by Salini Costruttori Spa as a result of the quality of its cable which has to work under high ambient temperatures, its ability to meet the customer’s tight schedule and because of Tratos’ positive environmental record.

The environmental impact of the new dam has been a major consideration for all parties, with Salini employing clean technology and looking for suppliers who are able to demonstrate a genuine commitment to reducing their environmental impact. Tratos has long been committed to working with customers to find more environmentally friendly solutions to their cable requirements, producing cables without halogens for example and a cable made using purely hydroelectric energy, as well as keeping its packaging’s carbon footprint as low as possible. Most recently Tratos has been awarded ISO 14001 certification for its Environmental Management Systems.
