Newly built brewery
Remco International realised various industrial buildings at a brewery in Kilinto, near Addis Ababa Ethiopia, including a brewery house, utility building, a hall for production lines and storage and many metres of pipe bridges.
In 2013/2014, several buildings with a total surface area of 21,366 m² were constructed.
Phase 2, with a total surface area of 20,407 m², was completed in 2016.
Phase 3 was built on the same site in 2018/2019, similar to the earlier phases. This extension has already taken account of increasing production for phase 4. This phase does not require any new construction; it can be realised in the buildings of phases 1, 2 and 3. With this expansion, the client is able to produce no less than 6,000,000 hl of beer per year. That is an average of 1,650 m3 (38 swimming pools!) of beer per day!
Phase 3 consists of:
|Building||Tons of steel|
|4.||Full product store and general store||516|
|5.||Water treatment plant||15|
|6.||Malt intake and conveyor bridge||50|
The 90 sea containers with a total of 896 tons of steel are transported in 19 phases and it takes about nine weeks to get them on site.
Corporate Social Responsibility
The customer likes the fact we build international projects together with local workers. This is both a source of income for the local people involved, as well as giving them a lot of experience that they can use in their future careers. Our supervisors monitor safety, quality and planning. At the start of the project, we had one supervisor on site. As the project progresses, we will scale this number up and two to three more supervisors will fly to Ethiopia.
Because of the pleasant cooperation during Kilinto I and Kilinto II the customer has chosen Remco Ruimtebouw again.
