The Orient Cement Industrial Park is 1.5 km in length and 1 km in width, covering a total area of around 2 sqaure kilometers. The contracted cement production line is located on a mountainous region with a height of 3080m above sea level, endowed with sound conditions for project implementation. The pulverzing mill station is situated in a corner of the industrial park, enjoying nice conditions for construction. Since the period from July to September is the rainy season of Addis Ababa, the project commencement date and the implementation schedule might be subject to the further arrangement by the Employer according to the actual situation.
