(Business in Cameroon) - Jean-Bernard Levy, CEO of Électricité de France (EDF), a shareholder in the Nachtigal dam construction project in Central Cameroon, was on the construction site on November 26, 2019.

During this field trip, accompanied by Cameroon's Minister of Water and Energy Gaston Eloundou Essomba, it was revealed that more than 1,300 employees are already working on this project, which was officially launched in February 2019.

These employees, and others to be recruited, are working to deliver, in 2023, a 400 MW dam representing one-third of the country’s current power generation capacity.
