(Business in Cameroon) - On June 20, 2019, the foundation stone of the Mbakaou mini hydropower plant was laid in Adamaoua. The project carried out by an independent producer IED Invest Cameroon will generate 1.4 MW of energy extensible to 2.8 MW.

Officially, this infrastructure, which will cost XAF4.5 billion (including the construction of the transport line), will be delivered in 2020. Mbakaou mini hydropower plant will provide energy to 3,000 households in Tibati.

The energy produced by IED Invest Cameroon will be bought by Eneo in the framework of an agreement signed on June 16, 2016.

"This project will help Eneo replace the costly energy from Tibati and Mbakaou thermal power plants with clean energy and save about XAF300 million per year," Adolphe Ndjouke Thome, general secretary at the ministry of water and energy, explains.
