By Jason McLure

Sept. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Ethiopia will spend $1.4 billion to increase sugar production fourfold within the next five years, said Belay Dechasa, director of the state-run Sugar Development Agency.

The Horn of Africa nation is building a $725 million sugar factory at Tendaho in eastern Ethiopia and will expand three existing plants, Dechasa said in an interview today in the capital, Addis Ababa. Production may increase to at least 1.3 million metric tons by 2012, from 280,000 tons.

``We intend to be the least-cost producer in the world market,'' he said, without elaborating.

Agriculture in Ethiopia, Africa's biggest coffee producer, accounts for 47 percent of the nation's economy, according to World Bank statistics. The country currently imports about 50,000 tons of sugar a year and exports 20,000 tons of the sweetener at a preferential price to the European Union under the Everything But Arms trade initiative.

The expansion project will be funded with a $640 million loan from India, with additional financing provided by the Ethiopian Treasury, a state-owned sugar development fund, the Ethiopian Development Bank and the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia.

The Tendaho plant in the Afar region, already under construction, will have the capacity to produce 600,000 tons of sugar annually, Dechasa said.

Output at the Wonji factory, 100 kilometers (62 miles) east of Addis Ababa, will be increased to 300,000 tons, from 75,000 tons, while production at the Methara plant in the central Oromia region, will double to 126,000 tons. The Finchaa factory, 350 kilometers west of the capital, will triple current output of 85,000 tons.

UPDATE: Tendaho Housing’s Second Phase Nears Completion

Quote:
The construction of the second phase the Tendaho Sugar Factory’s housing project, which has been delayed as a result of a shortage in construction materials, is due to be completed by January 8, 2011, with the third phase planned to start immediately afterwards.

The second phase, which involves the construction of 5,610 houses on the plantation in Afar Regional State, in a 70km range from Dubti to Asaita by the Tendaho Housing Project, was planned to be completed by September 2010, according to Lisanu Dibeta, head of Construction Administration Department for the housing project. However, a shortage of cement and financial constraints due to the increase in price of construction materials resulted in the delay, he added.

“The amount of cement bought from Messebo Cement Factory was not sufficient to meet the demand of the project following the ban on cement imports,” Lisanu told Fortune. “A month ago, 160,000ql of cement was facilitated by the housing project allowing construction to resume.”

The second phase construction was projected to cost 965 million Br, but is expected to increase following the devaluation of the Birr against a basket of international currencies, according to Lisanu.

The first phase of the housing project saw 3,384 houses built at a cost of 618 million Br which were finished in February 2010. The buildings include two, three, and four-storey buildings, as well as schools, health centres, hospitals, and recreation centres.

Close to 300 contractors took part in the construction, according to Lisanu.

The housing project cited a lack of labour and extreme working conditions as additional reasons for the delay of construction.

“We do construction work from September to January due to the temperature in the area reaching up to close to 50 degrees centigrade,” Lisanu told Fortune. “There is also scarcity of labour; most of the labourers come from the highlands around Wollo, Amhara Regional State.”

The plantation’s earth dam project, which can disperse 78 cubic metres of water per second to the 60,000ht sugarcane plantation, has been completed at a cost of three billion Birr, according to Kassahun Leulseged, consultant of the dam project. The dam can hold 1.86 billion cubic metres, he added.

“The dam is now full and even has some fish in it,” Kassahun told Fortune. “However, there are some little corrections to be done yet.”

Officials at the project were unwilling to disclose why the dam has not started irrigating the plantations yet.

Once completed, the Tendaho Sugar Factory is expected to produce 600,000tn of sugar and 61,000 cubic metres of ethanol, according to the project plan.

The factory project was initiated as part of a 15 billion Br project to expand the sugar industry with the intention of increasing the amount of ethanol production by the government.

Sunday, 29 May 2011 03:00


- በአምስት ወራት ውስጥ 3,969 ሠራተኞች መፍለሳቸው ይነገራል

መንግሥት ከአንድ ቢሊዮን ብር በላይ ወጪ በማውጣት የጀመረው የተንዳሆ የሸንኮራ አገዳ ፕሮጀክት የጉልበት ሠራተኛ ፍላጐትና አቅርቦት ሊጣጣም አለመቻሉን አንድ የፕሮጀክቱ ከፍተኛ ኃላፊ ለሪፖርተር ገለጹ፡፡

the factory is also 60% complete apparently:




Quote:
As the three old factories that supply 300,000 tonnes to the national market could not meet the local demand, the government has launched various activities to build the nine new sugar factories, to complete the Tendaho plant whose construction is well in progress and complete the expansion works on the three old ones (Wonji-Shewa, Fincha and Metahara) so as to realize the import substitution national target and start exporting the commodity. A number of reasons drive the government to attach special attention to sugar development.

Firstly, Ethiopia is endowed with huge land resource suitable for the development of the commodity. Secondly, the substantial increase in its demand as countries' economies continue to grow around the world and the availability of large export market for African sugar in the European market is also another opportunity. Tendaho Sugar Factory is among the factories under construction in the Afar State as part of the national effort at a cost of 11.8 billion birr . ''The construction of this factory was launched in 2006.

However, due to various challenges, we can say that the project was effectively started only two years back. Now, as you can see, it is well in progress,'' Factory Operations Project Deputy General Manager Endalkachew Zenebe told a group of journalists visiting the project site. The construction of the main factory plant is now 60 per cent complete, according to project officials.

It seems to me our government is more focused on Agriculture than industrialization when it plans to spend 1.4 Billion dollars on Sugar alone. But again no nation industrialized with out agriculture/food.
