Description

The project aims at rehabilitating the inoperative hydro power plant, located on the St. Paul River approximately 27 km (17 miles) northeast of Monrovia in Montserrado County, to its initial capacity of 64 MW and re-constructing the associated transmission lines to Monrovia.

Objectives

The project provides renewable hydro electricity to support the economic development in a post-war country. Electricity will be provided to the capital city of Liberia, Monrovia, and in a later stage, to other regions of the country and to the neighbouring countries when the planned regional interconnection project CLSG is implemented.
