MIGA has been approached by Symbion Power Mauritius Ltd. to cover its equity investment to Symbion Power Lake Kivu Limited (SPLK), which is a special purpose vehicle established to develop the Kivu 56 Power Plant (Kivu 56 or the Project). The Project involves the design, construction, operation and maintenance of four off-shore gas extraction facilities (GEF) on Lake Kivu, an on-shore gas processing facility, pipelines connecting the GEFs to the on-shore facility (together, the Gas Plant), a 56 MW gas power plant, and ancillary infrastructure including a transmission line and a 600 m access road. The Project is located on the Rwandan side of Lake Kivu in Rubavu District on a peninsula near Busoro, approximately 10 km south of Rubavu and 150 km from Kigali. The GEFs will be constructed as floating platforms tethered to the bottom and located approximately 2 km from the nearest shore, and 5 km from the Project's on-shore facilities.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
