In recent years, with the rapid growth of the Ethiopian economy, the shortage of electricity has emerged as a threat to the development. In order to solve the problem, the Ethiopian government has initiated the National Grid Project. The contractor of the project is just an XCMG’s key account. For this project, the contractor has ordered some cranes, loaders, rollers, bulldozers, graders, excavators and pavers.
The National Grid Project was started in the last December. Its construction period is about 2 years. Recently, the project area has entered the rainy season and the most jobs under the project have been stopped due to the inconvenience caused by the bad weather for most machines supplied by other brand makers. However, in order to help Ethiopians to get the electricity as soon as possible, XCMG service teams are doing their best to keep their products working on the job sites. In the picture is an XCMG XS142J roller working at the construction site in the bad weather.
