Production and storage
Remco Ruimtebouw received an order for a new brewery, utility-building and production and storage place. This also includes pipe bridges on an existing brewery in Ethiopia. In the past we built Kilinto I (21,366 m2) and Kilinto II (20,407 m2) for this customer. Kilinto III will also be built at the same site.
Kilinto III will become a similar copy of the already completed phases. With this expansion the customer is already taking care of the increase of the production in the future for phase 4. This phase 4 doesn’t need a new building. Phase 4 can be realized in the buildings of phase 1, 2 and 3. Due to Kilinto III the customer is able to produce no less than 6.000.000 hectoliters of beer per year. That's an average of 1,650 m3 (38 swimming pools!) of beer each day!
What are we going to do in phase 3:
|Building||Tons of steel|
|4.||Full product store and general store||516|
|5.||Water Treatment Plant||15|
|6.||Malt intake and conveyor bridge||50|
|7.||Multiple pipe bridges||170|
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.
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.
