  • Sudan completes expansion of 1,800-MW Roseiris hydropower project

    Roseiris Hydropower Plant

    A US$441.5 million expansion of Sudan's Roseiris hydroelectric project is now complete, the country's Dams Implementation Unit (DIU) has announced.

    The four-year project -- which added 10 meters to the dam's height and extended its length from 13 km to 25 km -- not only increases Roseiris' generating capacity 50% to 1,800 MW, but also expands the reservoir's storage capacity from 3 billion cubic meters to nearly 7.5 billion cubic meters.

    "The Sudanese have waited for this project for 42 years, and now the time has come to gain the fruits of our patience and dedicated work," DIU General Director Mohamed Hassan Al Hadari said at a recent inauguration ceremony.

    According to Sudanese officials, the dam's reservoir is now capable of providing year-round irrigation for more than 5 million acres of farmland and will also help improve production at the Merowe hydroelectric project, which is located downstream along the Blue Nile River.

    The project was executed by the China International Water & Electric Corporation with backing from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries.
