Tana Drilling and Industries PLC –

Tana Drilling and Industries PLC (TDI) has been operational for the past 14 years, leading the water well drilling sector in Ethiopia. TDI recently started producing high quality PVC and HDPE Pipes and strives to achieve client satisfaction through the quality work produced by our highly skilled professional staff. As a company, we invest in our technicians to give them the necessary skills to operate state-of- the-art machinery, including the Ingersoll Rand drilling rig. Our staff take all the necessary training to keep up to date as the industry advances. As a result, we continue to operate at a high standard, and maintain a position of leadership in the industry.

At Tana Drilling Industries we use our significant resources to fill in the gap that external support agencies have tried to meet in order to increase the drilling capacity of government agencies and NGOs. Apart from providing solutions at a regional level, TDI is set to expand water well drilling and borehole works to other African and Middle Eastern countries.


To be the regional leader of water supply systems in the African continent by providing a full customer solution from design to commissioning in conjunction with the manufacturing of high quality pipes, fittings and deep well drilling services with a goal being a major contributor in the drive towards clean water access for all.


Through its state of the art manufacturing facilities and extensive experience in the drilling and installation of water supply systems, Tana will seek out and build partnerships with local and regional customers to produce innovative and cost-effective products and services.


The high capacity of our plant, advanced technology, and efficiency of our machinery and equipment places Tana Drilling and Industries Plc as the leader in Ethiopia. Furthermore, it gives us the ability to equal the combined capacity of all the other plastic manufacturing industries in the country, with an annual capacity of more than 30,000 tons. Our capacity is expected to exceed 50,000 MT within the next two years. All of this will be accomplished with the support of our laboratory, which utilizes the latest and highest precision testing equipment from a world renowned German manufacturer and can also serve other industries in the field.

High Capacity & Quality Extrusion

The pipes production line of TDI consists of seven extrusion lines from Krauss Maffei of Germany, with a total capacity of 4,600 kg/h and 100% efficiency (guaranteed by the supplier). All seven extrusion lines are fitted with Programmable Logic Controllers and equipped with automatic material handling system, which serves as a dosing, mixing and conveying system.

Laboratory Equipment

TDI’s HDPE and PVC pipes are subject to strict quality control programs for monitoring. Before being released for production use, incoming materials are tested to ensure that they meet standard criteria. In addition, the pipes production process and finished goods are guaranteed to be of the highest quality.

Raw Materials Dryers

TDI has also invested in a system for drying the polyethylene raw materials. Our system is dust free and preheats the polyethylene granules before they are processed in the extrusion equipment. The polyethylene raw material, which is currently imported from abroad, absorbs moisture while in transit to our factory.


The factory has two high capacity, outdoor, air cooled chillers. Each has a cooling capacity of 630MW and is equipped with process cooling rigs with spare pumps and other necessary attachments.
