Voith has opened a new facility in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia that will be a centre for hydropower projects in East Africa.

The new East Africa Hub will coordinate hydropower projects in nine countries – Ethiopia, Egypt, Kenya, Sudan, South Sudan, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

Voith will work with customers and investors to continue to play an active role in developing a sustainable energy supply in Africa.

Voith has been a partner in the region for more than 70 years.

“Good market conditions and the proximity to our customers and partners, as well as the hydropower market potential and impressive economic development in recent years make Ethiopia an ideal base for our new site,” said Voith Hydro CEO Uwe Wehnhardt.
