Construction of Kessem Sugar Factory to be launched
The Kessem Sugar Factory Project Office said the Construction of Kessem Sugar Factory in Afar State, at a cost of two billion Birr, would be launched soon. Sugar plantation would be carried out on 20,000 hectares of land. The Project Office Acting General Manager, Ewnetu Zewde, said that the project was originally intended to be an extension of the expansion of Metehara Sugar factory; however, the project is being run independently since last June. He said currently the construction of irrigation development and sugar plantation is underway. He said sugar cane is cultivated on a plantation covering 1,225 hectares of land. Up to 2,700 hectares of land would be cultivated. The Manager said sugar cane would be cultivated on 5,000 hectares of land, on average, per year. Besides creating up to 12,000 jobs, the project would enable the pastoralist community to converge and settle in a village and engage in crop development, he said. According to him, the factory will have the capacity to crush 100, 000 quintals of sugar cane a day.
