The First Ethiopian Women Civil Engineer
Since the time women started to come out of domestic chores in Ethiopia, they have made significant contribution in all spheres of activities vital to the country. There are women who managed to move up the ladder in professional careers wining all sorts of discrimination based on gender. Engineer Birinesh Asfaw is one of such women. She is the first women civil engineer for the Ethiopian Road Authority and in fact in our country.
Attended her primary education at Nigiste Sabha primary school founded in the Adwa town and her secondary education at then Addis Ababa Menen School of girls. She then joined the Addis Ababa University Faculty of Technology where she was awarded B.sc in Civil Engineering in 1972. Since the number of students graduated in field during that year was only five. Engineer Birnesh did not face any problem in getting job. She was assigned to the then High Way Authority where she worked for one year and resigned to join the Ethiopian Air Force. She then rejoined High Way Authority and served for 22 years in the capacity of associate engineer and head of the design branch. In addition to the responsible position healed , Engineer Birinesh supervised the following projects
upon establishment of the Transport Construction Design Enterprise in 1995/by transferring the design department under the Ethiopian Road Authority /, Eng. Birnesh was assigned to the new enterprise where she served in the capacity of Assistant Manager of Material Testing and Research Department until 2000. since then until she was retired in 2005, she was working as Acting General Manger and then General Manager of The Transport Construction Design Enterprise.
After retirement she established a private company known as Global Engineers.

China to construct mega wind farm in Ethiopia
A Chinese company, Dongfang Electric Corporation Limited (DECL) in conjunction with The Ethiopian Electric Power Utility (EEP) is set to construct a wind farm in Ethiopia. The wind farm will be constructed in Aisha area of Somali Region.
The new wind farm which will have has 80 turbines will each have the capacity to generate a whopping 1.5MW. It will be constructed 20km at the Djibouti-Ethiopian boarder.
On the agreement that was signed by both EEP and DECL, the wind farm is approximated to cost of US$ 257m. But funds for 85 per cent of the project will be secured from the Chinese EXIM bank. However the remaining 15pc will be taken care of by the government.
Misikir Negasha, EEP’s public relations leader said that the wind farm is expected to be completed in 18 months time.
“The project is programmed to be concluded 18 months from the time of commencement and hopes are high that the contracted company can complete it on suitable time,” said Mr. Negasha.

Geotechnical soils reports will briefly review the geological history of the area coupled with a reconnaissance report of the particular site and its surroundings. The details of sampling will indicate the location of each borehole, its elevation and depth and a rough indication of the soils encountered at each level of the borehole. Groundwater conditions are also noted which allow for estimating future seepage into foundations, uplift pressures on foundations and the need for adequate drainage. The report will give a classification of all the various types of soils encountered along with their strengths as determined in the laboratory or on site. Finally the most important information in these reports will be the bearing capacity of the soil, its shear strength, and the possibilities of settlement or consolidation. Certain soils may have a potential for expansion, which can cause upheaval and other problems.
