Water And Energy Infrastructure - PPP Basis
Through the implementation of maintenance, rehabilitation and development of its energy infrastructure, Cameroon plans, in the energy sub-sector:
• permanently reduce the deficit
structural, carrying the ability to production of the country at 3000 MW at the horizon 2020;
• meet energy needs for achieving growth objectives defined;
• become an exporter of electricity and thus contribute to the balance of the country’s trade balance.
To achieve these objectives, a series of actions had been envisaged. The Lom Pangar dam, the Memve’ele hydroelectric dam and the Kribi gas power plant are completed. The Nachtigal and Bini power plants at Warack are in the process of being started up, and plans are underway to develop several other sites with potential for energy export.
In addition, particular interest is placed on the development of transmission lines so as to significantly reduce the losses recorded throughout the distribution system of the electrical energy produced at the various sites.
The Government, through the DSCE, forecasts a ten-year overall cost of approximately 5,853 billion CFA francs for the works of production and transport of electricity by large networks. This underlines the importance that the State of Cameroon attaches to the sustainable reduction of the electric power deficit. The PPP option is preferred here in the realization of these projects. With regard to Water supply, the strategy of the sub-sector successively aims to develop infrastructure for the production of drinking water and improve its access by households.
The flagship actions that emerge from this sub-sector relate to the supply of drinking water to the city of Yaoundé from the Sanaga, as well as to the continuation of the drinking water supply project in the city of Douala..
