On the outskirts of the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, Africa’s first energy from waste project is close to completion. The so-called Reppie project is set to transform waste disposal for the rapidly expanding city’s population, but is also expected to serve as a waste management blueprint for the whole of sub-Saharan Africa.
Being developed and constructed as a turnkey project by an Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) contracting consortium, upon completion Reppie will be owned by the national power utility Ethiopian Electric Power (EEP). The facility will supply some 50 MW of electricity to the national grid, supporting about a quarter of the city’s power demand.
The EPC consortium conducting the development includes China’s Cambridge Industries Limited (CIL) together with China National Electric Engineering Co. Ltd (CNEEC). Cambridge Industries Ltd was formerly a subsidiary of biomass combustion specialists DP Cleantech Ltd. Denmark’s Ramboll is acting as the owner’s engineer on behalf of EEP.
