(Business in Cameroon) - Recently, Nachtigal Hydro Power Company (NHPC), in charge of the construction of Nachtigal dam, and Cameroon’s ministry for public health has signed a partnership agreement (amounting to CFA740 million to be disbursed over 5 years) for the implementation of public health projects in the framework of the Nachtigal Dam’s construction.

Among those projects, there is the reinforcement of the health centers’ infrastructures and their capacities and the provision of drinking water around the Nachtigal dam’s site.  In the framework of that agreement, the workers on that site and the community around will be sensitized on health issues and vaccinated.  

For the record, for the coming 35 years, NHPC will be the concessionaire of Nachtigal dam. Its shareholders are Cameroon (30%), the International Finance Corporation (30%) and EDF International (40%). The first machines of this dam should be commissioned during S1, 2020 and by S1, 2021, all the remaining machines would be commissioned. Cost of the works is about CFA690 billion.
