Hawassa Industrial Park (HIP)

IPDC’s flagship project, Hawassa Industrial Park, is located 275 km from Addis in proximity to one of Ethiopia’s premium holiday destination, Lake Hawassa. Hawassa Industrial Park will be upon completion a 300 Ha Eco-Park, centered on textile and garment products, and fully integrated to the city, in collaboration with Hawassa University.
As an Eco-Park, Hawassa will be mostly powered by renewable electricity sources (hydro-electricity). The design and construction of Hawassa will be conceived around energy and water conservation principles – including maximization of natural lightning and natural ventilation, fitting of low consumption bulbs, recycling of rain water, and solar powered LED street lights - making it Ethiopia’s first major eco-friendly development.
In Phase 1 cycle 1, 100 hectares of land will be developed, and serviced land will be available as early as 4th quarter of 2015, with pre-erected factory sheds available from mid-2016. In parallel, the Government of Ethiopia is improving Hawassa’s connectivity with the extension of the Addis-Adama highway to Hawassa, the construction of a domestic airport, and the extension of the Addis – Modjo – Djibouti railway to Hawassa.
