STEFANO, Italy 2/3/12 (PennWell) -- Cable manufacturer Tratos Cavi Spa has been awarded a multi-million-dollar contract to supply low- and high-voltage cable for the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.

The 6,800-MW hydropower plant is on the Nile River in northwestern Ethiopia and is expected to be complete by 2017, according to a Tratos release. When complete, it will be the largest hydro project in Africa and feature two powerhouses with a combined 15 turbines.
