Power solutions for Africa’s biggest dam in Ethiopia

Power Generatos-Power Plant-Abbis Abeba-Ethiopia


An important industrial group specialized in the construction of major works asked PRAMAC to join in the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance dam construction, Africa’s biggest dam, to be completed in 2017 generating up to 15,000 gigawatt hours per year. The client was responsible of the entire building project and needed to guarantee a continuous power supply, as economical as possible. To ensure power, PRAMAC has supplied 16 diesel generators to run for up to 18 hours a day during the building process and supply more than 40 megawatts of electricity for the remote construction site extending over several kilometers. Each of the PRAMAC gensets has been provided to supply close to 2.600 kilovolt-amperes for the construction machinery and other electrical equipment.
