Omo Kuraz Sugar Factory One
Omo Kuraz Sugar Factory One is found at Selamago District of South Omo Zone of S/N/N/P Region at a distance of 863 km from Addis Ababa. By an agreement signed in June 2012 with the former Metal and Engineering Corporation (METEC), factory construction had been supposed to be completed and begin production in 18 months. However, due to the delay for long period to complete the construction, contract with METEC was terminated by the decision of government in 2018. Construction of the factory had reached 83.3% at the termination point.
Obtaining the required finance sometime in the future, the remaining part of the construction of the factory is expected to be completed by well experienced foreign contractor that will overtake the responsibility. When the factory’s remaining construction work concluded and operates in full capacity it is expected to crush 12 thousand tons of sugarcane a day. The project with Omo Kuraz Sugar Factory Number Two is currently led by one management temporarily.
