ERITREA | Other Cities | General Construction

he following pictures are concept models and blueprints of how some of Eritrea's future construction projects may look like. These images below, which are still images taken from Eri-TV, are currently being passed around by the government of Eritrea, as likely future development projects for the cities of Asmara, Keren, Massawa and Assab. These blueprint concepts show a wide diversity of skyscrapers, tourist resorts and 5 star hotels.

It must be noted that the government of Eritrea is in talks with a Qatari construction firm of EDESSA to build a new 5-star hotel building in Asmara. In addition to this, EDESSA construction company has been awarded to restore Massawa Island's historic buildings and modernize its facilities.

I think the skyline project is Asseb due to the water surrounding it

Eritrea's Construction Projects for 2011

May 29, 2011 (ERITREA) – The Minister of Public Works, Mr. Abraha Asfaha, disclosed a number of major construction projects will be implemented in 2011.

Going into detail, Mr Asfaha stated Eritrea will construct four new large stadiums, in addition to the two already being renovated in Asmara. He further highlighted residential and apartment complexes will be given a top priority, as well as modernizing Massawa and Assab ports. Moreover, the minster noted various airports will be constructed throughout Eritrea and no less than 56 new schools will be constructed.

Recent Construction and Renovation news around Eritrea.


The Ghedem Construction Company recently disclosed it will establish a new foam factory in the Gash Barka region; which in addition to the one in Massawa, will help in accelerating construction projects throughout Eritrea. The head of Ghedem Construction Company, mr. Mebrahtu Mael, also noted large apartment complexes are currently being constructed in the town of Gahtelay, using the foam-core panels.





Virtually every large building seen in the photo below of Massawa's mainland has been constructed between 1995 to 2011. Massawa undoubtedly has seen some of the most development, in comparison to its size, than any city within Eritrea.



Costing 15 million Nakfa to build (1 Million USD), president Isaias Afwerki recently inaugurated the new Saint George Church in Adi Keih. It is to be noted, the previous church had been completely destroyed on April 15, 1999 by invading Ethiopian aerial bombardment.



Eritrea's Gedem Cement Factory will commence operation within a few weeks. When fully operational, this multi-million dollar factory that's estimated to cost between 60 to 80 million USD, will produce over a thousand tons of cement daily, and will play a noticeable role in bringing the overall cost of construction down throughout the country.

Efficient stoves in the Eritrean highlands

The carbon offset project in Eritrea supports the villagers in building smokeless, efficient ovens. The reduction of the smoke and greenhouse gases benefits the climate and at the same time promotes the health of women and children.

The project in Eritrea is being carried out by the Swiss support committee for Eritrea (Schweizerischen Unterstützungskomitee für Eritrea, SUKE) together with the Eritrean partner organization Vision Eritrea.

Until now, every household in Eritrea has a so-called mogogo oven with which the traditional flatbread (injera) is prepared. However, the ovens do not have a chimney or smoke outlet and consume large quantities of firewood, which is scarce in that region. The new smokeless and energy-saving mogogo oven model was developed and tested by the Eritrean energy ministry. With the new ovens, no more health-damaging smoke accumulates in the house during cooking, which benefits the health of the women and children. Moreover, the new mogogo saves about 50 percent of firewood. The consumption of firewood, and therefore also the deforestation and the emissions of greenhouse gases, are consequently reduced.

The project also includes other social advantages: The population saves itself the tiresome gathering of firewood and the cooking time is reduced. This way, more time remains for other tasks. Since less money has to be spent for the purchase of the expensive firewood, the project supports the poorest families in Eritrea and thus leads to a social balance.


The efficient mogogo ovens are constructed by the village's women themselves.


Trained instructors assist the women of the village in the construction of the ovens.


Working together, the women erect the upper part of the mogogo oven with prefabricated tiles.


The village's women fill the gaps with sand and clay so that a stable construction is created.


With the smokeless and low-emission mogogo oven, the health-damaging smoke emissions during cooking are eliminated.
