Iso vesivoimalaitos Nigeriaan

Decades of planning are coming to fruition as construction of Nigeria's 3,050 MW Mambilla hydroelectric plant began earlier this week. The facility, to-be located on the Donga River in the eastern Taraba State, has stalled repeatedly since its conception in the early 1980s for a number of reasons -- most recently due to a landslide that blocked access routes to the project site in September. Nigeria's Minister of Power, Babatunde Fashola, said earlier this week that the government expects the plant to be complete in 2024.

At that time, Mambilla's cost was estimated at US$6 billion -- 70% of which was reported to be paid by Chinese firms and the remainder by the government of Nigeria. China's interest in the project results from a May 2007 decision to award contracts for Mambilla's development to the China Gezhouba Group Co. Ltd. and Sinohydro.  [rew]

Maailman suurimman vesivoimalaitoksen eli Kiinan Three Gorges Damin teho on 22,500 MW. Suomen suurimman vesivoimalaitoksen Imatran teho on 192 MW, eli 6% Mambillasta.
