Feasiblity Studies and Tender Documents for Goronyo SHP (3MW) and Bakolori SHP (3MW) , Nigeria


Federal Ministry of Power  2011 - 2012


Nigeria is suffering from a lack of reliable electrical power which impedes economic development of the country. The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources has a number of irrigation dams which have hydropower generating facilities installed but for one reason or another are not generating the power or are not connected to the national grid. There are other irrigation dams where there is a hydropower potential but no equipment has been installed so far. The Government of Nigeria aims at rehabilitating and developing the hydropower potential at those dams to address the current energy crisis as well as to increase the share of renewable energy in the country's energy mix. Entec AG has been contracted to provide consulting engineering services for the rehabilitaton of the 3 MW hydropower plant at the Bakolori irrigation dam (rockfill/earthfill dam length >5000m, height  48 m) and the construction of a new 3 MW hydropower plant at the Goronyo irrigation dam (rockfill dam length , height  21m) .
