Run-of-river Hydro Power Plant with a planned installed capacity of 7.6 MW and 36.7 GWh in annual production. The project is located in the Rubirizi district. Investment of USD 24M with USD 5.4M in GET FiT commitments.
Approved for GET FiT support after RFP 3 in November 2015. Preliminary construction commenced in early 2017, with expected COD in Q4 2018.
The project is currently implementing a major design change. The previous headrace tunnel is being replaced by a headrace canal. Importantly, this significantly reduces project costs and construction time for the project. However, continued GET FiT support is currently uncertain due to a number of challenging conditions that need to be met in a short time frame.
