Project Details

Ethiopia Lake Dredger


Project Description

Unit Export supplied a dredger to the Ministry of Water and Energy in Ethiopia, which is being used to manage the depth of water on Lake Tana.

Project Overview

After confirmation of the design and technical characteristics from the Ministry, the dredger was manufactured in Italy, before being delivered to a site in Ethiopia. To ensure the quality was as required, the dredger was fully inspected by qualified marine surveyors and given full sea trials, whilst Unit Export visited the factory and project site to ensure the project ran smoothly. The dredger was delivered disassembled and then reassembled by the manufacture’s engineers upon arrival. Full training was then provided to local engineers.
