After Ethiopia conducted the first and second filling, Egyptian water expert Abbas Sharaki revealed the major improvements related to the filling and operation of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.

In a post on its official Facebook page, Sharaki said: “Ethiopia made the first storage with about 5 billion m3 last year, and the second storage, which was not completed last July, was about 3 billion m3, a total of 8 billion m3, due to flooding, exceeding the capacity of the middle lane. 2 billion m3 was temporarily stored, which could be used to generate electricity, but after the end of the flood season in late October, 2 billion m3 temporarily passed without benefit.

He continued, “According to satellite images showing the lake’s receding, all gates are still closed.”

He pointed out that Ethiopia had not been able to operate the first two turbines planned last October, and Ethiopia’s Minister of Communications, Information Technology and Digital Economy, Huria Ali Mahdi, announced that electricity would be generated next year.

Thus, Abbas Sharaki stressed that the first and second storage would be ineffective. In the middle lane, next February, start laying concrete to elevate the middle lane, saving about 10.5 billion m3 to 595 m, saving a total of 18.5 billion m3, which is planned to be saved. 2020 season, but it is not even done in 2021, and if the civil war between the central government and the Tigris region continues Ethiopia will have to keep the current situation unchanged.
