This run-of-river hydropower project is located in Kasese and Kabarole Districts in Western Uganda. The Project commenced construction in July 2015 and achieved its COD by mid-October 2017.
During 2018, the Project delivered 28.5 GWh of energy to the grid. Grid failures and outages were approximately equivalent to 2 % of the potential plant output (energy delivered plus deemed energy), lower than the 8 % observed during 2017. Adjusting for the partial availability of the power evacuation line, the cumulative energy output of the plant would instead have been 29.1 GWh, approximately equivalent to 108 % of the average energy estimated at application stage.
Combined with the output generated in 2017, the Project has so far delivered a total of 35.4 GWh to the Ugandan grid.
