Ethiopia’s first ever Wind Power Plant has been constructed in Ashegoda, near Mekelle, the capital of Tigray. This plant with an installed capacity of 120MW is planned to be functional by 2013 February with the completion of the first phase by June 2011 with a capacity of 30MW.

The EEPCo (Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation) has contracted Vergnet Groupe for this project and the finances have been provided by BNP Paribas through soft loans of approximately € 210 million, through Agence France de Development. The turbines are custom built to connect to a weak power grid that occasionally stops due to power breakdown. All the 120 turbines are on the project location and the concrete work has been concluded.
