DR Congo: Inga III ‘undersized’, critics argue

Issue 268 - 20 Dec 2013 | 4 minute read
The question of how large Inga III should be has been raised by consultants retained to comment on the African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed study by EDF International and Aecom Technology Corporation’s Canada-based subsidiary Groupe RSW (AE 263/4). Democratic Republic of Congo and South Africa have signed a preliminary agreement for Eskom to take 2.5GW from Inga III, with the rest to go to mining firms and local consumers, in the first of six phases of the 39GW-44GW Grand Inga project (AE 266/1, 265/9, 255/1).
