Run-of-river Hydro Power Plant with a planned installed capacity of 16 MW and 115 GWh annual production located in Isingiro district, Southern Uganda on the border to Tanzania. Investment of USD 51.1M with USD 12.3M in GFPPM commitments.
After two years standstill, the Governments of Tanzania and Uganda signed a bilateral agreement for implementation of the project in 2015. This enabled the new owner, Berkeley Energy, to resume preparatory work. However, due to continued cross-border issues and difficulties in implementing bilateral agreements, the project has struggled extensively to achieve financial close and construction start.
While a few outstanding issues remain, progress on cross-border issues has been notable and the project now expects to commence construction within the first half of 2017.
