Rwandan renewable energy company Ngali Energy has started preliminary construction work on the 2MW Ntaruka hydropower project in the Nyaruguru district of Southern Province. The run-of-river project, which will cost an estimated $11m, is expected to be completed by 2018, according to managing director Leonard Gasana. “This project will help stabilise the grid in this part of the Southern Province and increase generation capacity of the country as Rwanda continues to strive to reach generation capacity of 563MW by 2018,” Gasana was quoted as saying in a 1 March report in the local New Times.
