Ethiopian Water Technology Institue

Ethiopian Water Technology Institute was established by the Council of Ministers Regulation No. 293/2013 as one of the very essential institutes which focus on Water sector capacity building and research and technology transferring activities in August 2013.

Capacity building is the process of gaining technical, managerial and institutional knowledge and insight in relation to the socio-economic structure, cultural standards, and values of the society concerned. It aims to increase the flexibility of institutions and society to adapt to changing circumstances.

The government of Ethiopia has implemented various strategies within its national development plan, one of the strategies is providing and increasing access to safe water supply and making modern sanitation services to all nations. To succeed in this goal the country must have advanced and skilled manpower in the water sector at all levels and highly participate in research and technology transfer activities in the water sector throughout the country.

National Meteorology Agency

Historical documents revealed that at the end of the 19th-century missionaries who entered Ethiopia were taking a meteorological observation of Addis Ababa. In addition to this, meteorological stations were established in 1890 and 1986 at Adamitulu and Gambela respectively. After that from 1946-to 1949, some preliminary meteorological tasks were carried out by government offices for the agricultural sector only, especially for locust control. However, due to the growing demands of meteorological information for safe operations of air transport, a unit that handles meteorological activity was also established in the early fifties under the Civil Aviation Department.

Finally, as the other economic and social sectors began to realize the importance of meteorological services the unit was changed with the responsibility of giving assistance to non-aviation activities. NMA had its present status. The government of Ethiopia officially established the National Meteorological Services Agency on December 31, 1980, under proclamation No 201 0f 1980.

Grand Ethiopian Renaissances Dam - Office of the National Council

About the Project

The Grand Ethiopian Renaissances Dam is being constructed for the purpose of generating electricity with total installed capacity of average annual energy production of about 15,759 GWh/yr. Discharge rate about 547 m3/s.  The reservoir area will cover 1,874 square kilometers at full supply level of 640 meters above sea level maximum and 590 meters minimum.  It has a 1.8 km length and 145 m height Roller Compacted Concrete dam. Saddle Dam embankment of length 5.2 km and height 50 m.

The total storage volume is 74 billion cubic meters

The dam is 1,780 meters long and 145 meters high and the RCC's full size of 10.2 million cubic meters is under construction on the Nile River.

Construction of drilling, cleaning, dental concrete, and RCC (Roller Compact Concrete) is underway in the construction of the dam, which has so far been completed with a total of 8.06 million RCC inserts. This is based on lower cement and cost savings technology. The project's construction include the two main diversion of the river and construction of relative construction processes , boating boats that serve the water needs of each of the power plants and the water needs of the lowland countries to each of the power stations..
