(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroonian minister of water and energy Gaston Eloundou Essomba recently visited the site of Nachtigal dam.  

During his visit, he advised the company in charge to outsource some of the dam’s construction works to local SMEs. He also expressed his will to see most of the workers on this site be residents of neighbouring areas.

With a generation capacity of 420MW, Nachtigal dam whose commissioning is expected in 2023, is to be the largest in Cameroon. It will boost the country’s capacity by 30%.

This infrastructure will be built by a consortium led by Besix Group, a Belgian construction company.
