Run-of-river Hydro Power Plant with a planned installed capacity of 5.5 MW and estimated 27 GWh annual production, located in Kasese district. Investment of USD 20.8M with USD 3.9M in GET FiT commitments.
The project reached financial close and initiated construction works in July 2015, and expected commercial operations date is Q3 2017. The power evacuation line is already completed, which is encouraging. However, the developer has encountered challenging conditions during the construction of the dam. A main contributor in this regard has been unusual flooding into the dry season. Moreover, the excavation of the waterway has proven to be more time-consuming than foreseen.
