Addis Ababa, 7 July 2014 (WIC) - An engine factory being constructed in Mekele Town of Ethiopia with 300 million birr will be operational in the coming year, the Ethiopian Power Engineering Industry said.

Industry General Manager Major Asefa Yohanes said that the factory will manufacture engines for light and heavy vehicles.

It will also produce engines for water pumps.

The factory will get input from the Akaki Metal Products Factory and Hibret Manufacturing Industry under the Metals Engineering Corporation.

Since the automotive industry is booming, manufacturing engines locally will help to save expenses for engines importation, the Manager said. (ENA)
