Rwanda hires adviser for 27.5-MW Nyaborongo, 9-MW Rukarara

Rwanda's Ministry of Infrastructure has awarded a contract for a technical adviser to the 27.5-MW Nyaborongo and 9-MW Rukarara hydroelectric projects.

With a grant from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (TDA), the government awarded a US$364,740 contract to Delphos International of the United States to help determine how Nyaborongo (also called Nyabarongo) and Rukarara should be implemented and financed. (HNN 10/18/06)

Detailed feasibility studies already have been prepared and firm quotations have been offered for engineering-procurement-construction contracts for both projects. TDA said the projects already are technically prepared for implementation and are expected to be commissioned by 2010.

However, TDA said, it is critical for the Rwanda government to match East African Community pricing for hydropower to ensure that energy intensive industries in Rwanda, such as sugar, tea, and cement, will not be at a competitive disadvantage to neighboring countries.

The transaction adviser is to help the government arrive at the best ownership and financing structure to meet the hydropower pricing goal. The work is to be completed by January 2008.
