06 November 2014

SINOHYDRO Corporation Limited has been awarded a US$85-m contract for construction of a 79.1-km road in the Southern Region of Ethiopia.

The new road will extend from Mender to Hana town from Omo Kuraz Sugar Factory, reducing the Sodo-Arbaminch-Jinka-Hana-Omo route to the sugar factory by 180 km. Construction is scheduled to take two years.

A 60-year enterprise in power and infrastructure sectors, SINOHYDRO provides clients with one-stop customer-tailored services from project consultancy, financing, survey, design and engineering to construction, fabrication, installation and operation.

Sinohydro Corporation Limited has constructed more than 900 km of road in its 11-year presence in Ethiopia.

In October Ethiopia announced that it would spend US331m for road network expansion in the country.
