(Business in Cameroon) - Populations will have to wait until 2020 to use the energy generated by the Memvé’élé dam though construction work on this 211 MW infrastructure was completed since 2017.

Speaking during the recent Salon Promote that ended Feb 24 in Yaoundé, the project coordinator Dieudonné Bisso (photo) said the delay is due to construction of the power transmission facilities which will not be delivered until 2020.

In detail, the construction of the 225 KV transmission line between Nyabizan (dam site) and the city of Ebolowa is complete, but work is still ongoing on the Ebolowa-Yaoundé line. Let’s recall that the Memvé’élé dam is located in the southern region of the country.
