DR Congo: Paper casts fresh doubt on Grand Inga output


Issue 308 - 25 Sep 2015 | 3 minute read
A new discussion paper circulated by French engineer Alain Léautey has cast further doubt on the likely output of the Grand Inga hydroelectric scheme. In the analysis, titled Inga 3: utopie ou réalisme?, Léautey, who spent years working on the rehabilitation of Inga I and II for French engineering company Ingerop and Italy’s Franco Tosi, argues that the headline generation figure of 39GW-42GW for Grand Inga cited in studies and official documents from the Congolese government and its partners is highly questionable.
