Limited Ethiopian Branch has successfully delivered the Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) project worth approximately 37 million USD to the Ethiopian Electric Power Office in an official ceremony held today, 12 July 2016, at Sheraton Addis Hotel.
Mr Li GuangYong, ZTE’s Eastern Africa representative, officially handed over the project to Engineer Azeb Asnake, CEO of the Ethiopian Electric Power Office at the ceremony. Financed by ICBC (the Chinese Commercial Bank) and the government of Ethiopia, the project was signed in 2013 by the two parties and completed on the 22nd of June 2016.
It covers a total of about1235 kms of OPGW line across the country and aims at increasing the country’s network system as well as its efficiency and reliability. Applauding the performance of ZTE, Engineer Azeb officially indicated that her office would consider ZTE’s partnership in other upcoming projects as well. “This is not the last project for ZTE.
It is the first instead. We want you in the future too,” Azeb said while delivering her speech. “The project that ZTE delivered today is highly helpful for us in transmitting voice and data as well as in protecting the high voltage wastage,” she added. According to Azeb, her organization (EEP) is eying to replace the current lines with OPGW lines in the near future and it would consider ZTE as one best partner to cooperate with.
“Working with ZTE helps us to acquire trained human power,” Azeb also noted. Reminding the great projects ZTE have done in Ethiopia for the last 16 years and mentioning the fact that ZTE has been cooperating with significant government offices here, Mr Li on his part congratulated the team who took part in the project both from ZTE and EEP.
Mr Li did also underline that this project would be an excellent milestone in strengthening the cooperation between the two companies. At the event, the two strategic partners exchanged appreciation letters to each other and awarded outstanding team members who played great roles in the completion of the project.
