CeTeau Vertical Wick Drain for railway project Ethiopia

CeTeau completed the supply and installation of vertical drains for the Awash-Kombolcha-Hara Gebaya railway project in Ethiopia. The project has a significant importance as it connects the northern and eastern economic and traffic corridor of Ethiopia. The 375-kilometer long railway to be built will connect the capital Addis with Djibouti, which is the main corridor for both passenger and freight. Furthermore, the construction of this railway will play an active and significant role in connecting the northern region of the country with the central part.


Soil improvement was required for several stretches of the new railway line. CeTeau provided the required installation equipment and materials with expert personnel to execute this project in a remote area in the north of Ethiopia. In order to meet the Client’s tight completion date, the project was executed throughout the monsoon period.
