(Business in Cameroon) - Work is progressing at the Memve'élé hydro project (211 MW), Southern region. The Ministry of Water and Energy (Minee) informed that the construction works of the 225 kilovolt (kV) energy evacuation line and related substations in Nyabizan - Ahala-Nkolkoumou, are now 55%-completed.

“It should be noted that the decrees regulating compensation for residents of the power evacuation line’s corridor of the departments of Ntem Valley and Mvila are available. So are the decrees settling compensation for the access road to the dam for the complete release of the right-of-way of the Meyo-centre - Ma'an - Nyabizan section,” the ministry mentioned. Further, authorized sources said the provisional delivery of the asphalting work on the access road to the Meyo-centre-Ma'an-Nyabizan dam (100 km), was carried out on 11 October 2018.

Let’s note that the Memve'élé dam was constructed by Chinese Synohydro on the Ntem River, with an energy transmission line between Nyabizan and Yaoundé, the capital. Work on this hydro facility (dam, factory, plant substation), valued at XAF420 billion, is at an overall 97% achievement rate. Partial provisional delivery took place in February this year and commissioning tests are scheduled by the end of the year, according to the Minee.
