Run-of-river Hydro Power Plant with a planned installed capacity of 4.8 MW and 22 GWh in annual production. The project is located in the Bundibugyo district. Investment of USD 15M with USD 3.2M in GFPPM commitments.
Approved for GET FiT support after RFP 3 in June 2015. DFA signed in 2016. Construction start is expected in mid-2017, with planned commissioning in Q4 2018. The project will benefit from the already initiated works on access roads etc. from its neighboring project Sindila.
The developer is currently considering a design change, specifically moving the intake location and headrace to create more head and thus increase the power output of the plant. However, time is running out for major changes like this, and the decision to actually proceed with the change is currently being discussed.
