Issue 406 - 19 Dec 2019 | 1 minute read
Rehabilitation of three 11.9 MW units at the 47.6 MW Selingue hydropower dam on the Sankarani River is expected to start in February 2020. The work is being financed by the West African Development Bank (BOAD) with up to CFA25bn ($42.5m). An engineer from the Ingerop/Artelia consortium contracted by the BOAD to oversee the works told African Energy the first tests on the Voith Kaplan turbines (G1, G2 and G3) should start in February and work on handling equipment and overhead cranes should start by end-March.
