  • Construction begins on Rwanda's 28-MW Nyabarongo

    Rwanda's energy minister has launched construction of the 28-MW Nyabarongo hydroelectric project on Rwanda's Nyabarongo River, Rwanda media reported.

    The New Times reported Energy Minister Albert Butare laid the foundation stone for the project in December on Bijyojyo Hill, along the Nyabarongo in Ngororero District, Western Province.

    When completed in 45 months, Nyabarongo is to be Rwanda's largest domestic hydropower project. The 61.5-MW Rusumo Falls project also is to be built jointly by neighbors Rwanda, Tanzania, and Burundi. (HNN 12/17/08)

    Rwanda's Ministry of Infrastructure awarded a 4 billion rupee (US$95 million) turnkey contract to a consortium of India's Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL) and Angelique International Ltd. to build the project. (HNN 8/11/08) BHEL said it is to supply two 14-MW Francis turbine-generators, transformers, controls, monitoring and protection system, and switchgear.

    India is providing an US$80 million line of credit to the project via the Export-Import Bank of India. Rwanda lawmakers approved legislation accepting the first US$20 million tranche of the funding in March. Under terms of the financing, India companies are to build the project with 85 percent of the equipment to come from India.
