Project Description

The objective of the Inga 3 Basse Chute and Mid-Size Hydropower Development Technical Assistance Project for Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is to contribute to the sustainable development of Inga 3 Basse Chute (BC) and selected mid-size hydropower projects.

There are two components to the project:

  1. Inga 3 BC development support. This component will build on the feasibility study for the development of the Inga site and associated interconnections financed in 2010-13 by the African Development Bank (AfDB). It will finance complementary studies, transaction advice and procurement support, and institutional support and sector strengthening. The scope of activities that will be financed by the TA will be influenced by the fine tuning of the allocation of activities and responsibilities between the public and private sector regarding the design and construction management of the common infrastructures.
  2. The second component is the mid-size hydropower development support. The component aims to develop midsize hydropower projects (with capacity between 10- 100 MW) by selecting potential projects, performing prefeasibility studies, accompanying bidding processes, and evaluating the possibilities for carbon finance. The component will result in feasibility studies and bidding documents, and support to Government of DRC, or GoDRC to select private developers and award concessions for three mid-size hydropower projects.

This project is part of the Programme for Infrastructure Development In Africa (PIDA)
