Jiang Fengchao has been on the road—Jing Fengchao, Project Manager of Esegima Industrial Park
Open the world map and locate the northeast of Africa - Ethiopia. With the continuous extension of the “Belt and Road” African route, Ethiopia, known as the “African Roof”, has ignited the Chinese style. Zhongtong Steel has seized the opportunity to defeat the competitors and win the Esegima Modern Industrial Park project. Zhongtong Steel As the general contractor for steel structure construction, it is responsible for project supply and on-site construction. The successful bid for this project is an important step in practicing the company's deep overseas strategy, and it is also indispensable for the long-term development of Ethiopia and Africa.
In the spring of 2017, project manager Jiang Fengchao led our construction advance troops to the project site, looking at the hills covered with lush trees, watching the mobile phone without signal, Jiang Fengchao jokingly said: Welcome to the primitive society. Because of the limited housing of the general contractor, Jiang Fengchao led everyone to flatten the site, set up the wall, and cover the iron house. For Jiang Fengchao, who has been stationed for a long time, it is not only necessary to overcome the inconvenience of diet and life, but also with a large number of work, oral ulcers and pharyngitis. And other symptoms, so every time you go to the capital Yadis to purchase materials necessary procedures are to purchase therapeutic drugs. The local elevation is nearly 3,000 meters, and the climate is dry and rainy. It is not only strong in ultraviolet rays, but also has a temperature difference of 25 degrees between day and night. It is not too much to describe it with “four seasons a day”. The sunburn and heat stroke of construction workers sometimes occur. Adjust working hours and prepare necessary protective measures to ensure construction progress.
Overcome difficulties and take the initiative
Due to the delay in the organization of materials in the previous period, the on-site construction was passive. The project department adjusted the time of the workers to reduce the cost and actively coordinated the customs clearance logistics in Ethiopia to ensure that the goods could be transported to the project site in the first time after arriving at the port. After the materials arrived, in order to compete for the construction progress, the project department formulated the construction schedule on a daily basis, and concluded the meeting every night to implement the plan completion situation, and recruited a large number of local employees and added Chinese employees. At the peak, the Chinese personnel reached 48 people. The employees reached 56 people, and the four teams started work at the same time, and the night work system was implemented. After one and a half months of hard work, the roof and wall of the No. 1-5 workshop were all completed and approved by the general contractor and the supervisor.
The road is ahead, the aspirations are high
Trust means responsibility, and customer needs mean our value. For overseas projects, the schedule is tight and the task is heavy. Going home is a luxury for everyone. Since entering the market in early 17th, Jiang Fengchao’s manager has not returned home for 1 year, and the project site signal is not good. He has been disconnected from the Internet for a long time. Sometimes he has to call the project department to fight. The gentle and strong wife, the smart and lively child, whenever he mentions these words that touch the depths of the soul, he always smiles.... .. On the Jima project, we demonstrated the spirit of our people's selfless dedication, rigorous and responsible attitude, and the mission of not shouldering the heavy responsibilities.
Emergency plan, quick response
Many construction workers did not have time to evacuate and hid in the surrounding mountains. After the parade personnel evacuated, the project department immediately counted our personnel and actively cooperated with the general contractor to implement the emergency evacuation plan and arranged for our drivers to wait in the camp for 24 hours. During this period, in the face of such a severe external security situation, the construction staff's emotional appeasement work is very important. Because the entire city of Gima is disconnected, the project department coordinates the general contractor to arrange for our workers to go to the general contractor to call the home. Ping An, it is the insistence of these personnel to provide guarantee for the construction of the follow-up project. During the riots, the performance of our project department was appreciated by the general contractor!
Project acceptance, merit
The current Jima Industrial Park project has entered the final work. The supervisory party carried out preliminary acceptance inspection on April 24, which affirmed the construction quality of our company. The smooth construction of the project will deepen the market of Ethiopia and gradually realize localized operation. It is of great significance. Now many Chinese companies have expressed their intention to enter the park. I believe that with the completion of the project, the Jima Industrial Park project will greatly promote the development of the local economy and become a new milestone in witnessing the friendship between China and Egypt.
