Run-of-river Hydro Power Plant with a planned installed capacity of 16 MW and estimated 72 GWh annual production located in Bukwo District, Eastern Uganda. Investment of USD 33M with USD 10.2M in GET FiT commitments.
The project started construction in August 2016, with expected commercial operation date in Q3 2018. In the long term, full and adequate power evacuation for Siti II depends on the progress of the Mbale–Bulambuli 132 kV transmission project.
Implementation of the latter will not be possible prior to commissioning of the HPP, hence an interim medium voltage solution is being constructed by REA to enable the timely interconnection of the plant (see Grid Interconnection Support for details).
