Station planned for Kagera river

French company coyne-et-bellier has won approval to build a hydro station on the River Kagera at Nshungyezi on the Tanzania-Ugandan border. If it goes ahead, the plant will support the growth of local industries, particularly milk production.

‘We have approved a power project through the Ministry of Co-operation in France to construct a hydro power station …which will be producing 54MW of power,’ said Mbarra resident district commissioner Ngoma Ngime. He went on to add that construction would begin in March, but a more restrained spokesman for Coyne et Bellier said that although a delegation from the company had indeed visited the site, the project was still firmly in the feasibility stage.
