Successful implementation of a 33kv power supply to Diageo’s Meta Abo Brewery
Case study

The brewery – located in Sebeta, Ethiopia – had been using generators for power to run operations for many years. It needed to replace an unreliable, overloaded 15kv supply with a stable and future-proof power source. Running the site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on generators was also costing a lot of money, both in diesel and maintenance costs.

The solution was a complete turn-key project to install a 33kV intake Sub Station, which would safely transition to consuming power from Ethiopian Electric Utility (EEU).

We took on the procurement of equipment and freight from the UK, Europe and Turkey. This included the construction of a new steel gantry c/w pole top equipment, a 52KV intake breaker, 33kV & 15kV cabling and terminations, protection, metering panels and earthing protection.


Installation and commissioning were carried out in collaboration with on-site engineers.

The Meta Abo communications desk shared the news that they are already starting to see the benefits across the KPI’S in Sebeta, setting a very bright future trend for them.
