Run-of-river hydropower plant with a planned installed capacity of 9.2 MW and estimated 39 GWh annual production, located in Kasese district. The Project secured investments of USD 26.8M, with USD 5.8M in GET FiT commitments, and commenced construction in Q4 2015. Construction progressed well during 2017, with the Developer working on multiple construction faces and within a relatively constrained footprint.
Most of the civil engineering structures were completed and the electromechanical installations in the power station were relatively advanced by the end of the year.
Construction of the 17 km long power evacuation line was completed by REA during 2016, well in advance of the commissioning phase for the Project. The Project is now nearing completion and expects to achieve commercial operation early during Q1 2018.
