Republic of Uganda (RoU), in association with United Republic of Tanzania (URoT), along with Maji Power Ltd a subsidiary of Norplan and Berkeley Energy, is planning to undertake the hydroelectric power plant project in Kikagati, Uganda.
The project involves the construction of a hydroelectric power plant with a capacity of 16MW. The project comprises two units, each with a power generating capacity of 8MW.
The project will include the construction of a dam, creating a 4,000m2 reservoir lake, a powerhouse will be located on the Ugandan side and the reservoir will cover both partner states, a head race and tail race tunnels, and a substation, the installation of turbines, transformers, generators, safety and security systems, and the laying of transmission lines.
On September 12, 2011, Uganda and Tanzania signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly develop the hydroelectric project. The project would be implemented by the special purpose vehicle (SPV) named, Kikagati Power Company Ltd.
A Joint Technical Committee (JTC) comprised of technical officers from the two Partner States and EAC Secretariat is responsible for steering the project implementation.
Norplan AS on behalf of Multiconsult in a joint venture with Scott Wilson Ltd, and with sub-contractors Newplan Ltd of Uganda and Norplan Tanzania Ltd of Tanzania has been appointed as consultant to prepare the tender documents for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the project.
