Sudan's 360 MW Kajbar hydropower scheme to proceed
23 May 2013 - The Sudan government is determined to go ahead with the
construction of the Kajbar hydroelectric project on the River Nile. The
project will generate some 360 MW and will require the relocation of 12
villages on the riverâ™s banks.
The project is seen as important in facilitating heavy industrial
activity in the area. However, the Chinese financed project has come up
against strong opposition from the residents of the region.
The government of Sudan is to undertake an open dialog with those
opposed to the project, and urges the countryâ™s citizens to understand
the economic benefits of the hydroelectric scheme. The implementation of
the Kajbar project will start only after the process of compensation and
resettlement is completed.
