On September 11th a contract was signed for five new buildings for Boortmalt in Ethiopia. Remco Ruimtebouw is going to build the first malt house in Africa for this Belgian company with malt houses all over the world.
The malting plant will be in Debre Birhan, about 100 km from Addis Abbeba, where we have realised several projects in the past. This contract is a great beginning of the (local) New Year. Last week they had celebrated the Coptic New Year of the year 2012 in Ethiopia.
The project comprises five different buildings with a total floor area of 3,826 m2. In addition to engineering, we also take care of delivery, transport and assembly.
The construction will start January 2020. For the assembly, we work with a local contractor led by one of our Dutch supervisors. Completion is scheduled for 1 May 2020.
