The Yayu Fertiliser Factory project with a total area of more than 54 hectare or 540,000 meter square contract winner is a local company! Yayu is located at Ilibabur zone, Yayu wereda. As you can see on the youtube video, 91 dump trucks, 19 excavators, 15 loaders, 13 bulldozers to mention the few participated on the this project. The excavation and site clearing was completed in less than 60 days. Clearing and excavation work has been finished and concrete work and factory erection will commence in 2005 Ethiopian Calendar. This has broken all the records and it is a solid proof that it is not only the Chinese or the Italian companies who are capable of doing such a work.
