    The Ugandan government has awarded a US$1.9 billion contract to Turkey's Mapa Construction Company for the construction of the 600-MW Ayago hydroelectric project.

    A memorandum between the parties, signed this past week, is part of Uganda's efforts to fast-track development of its energy production.

    "The most important thing in this project should be efficiency," Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said.

    Sources said the project is to be developed in two phases, with the Ayago North to have an installed capacity of 350 MW and the Ayago South to have a capacity of 250 MW.
