Tulu Moye Geothermal Operations project concerns the development and operation of a geothermal power generation opportunity at Tulu Moye in the Oromia Regional State of Ethiopia. The project will be developed in two phases: Phase I is intended to generate 50MW of electric power to Ethiopia, with a further 100MW to be developed in Phase II. The Project has conducted an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) and was given national environmental clearance in 2018. Several additional assessments have been prepared including a Supplementary Environmental and Social Technical Assessment, which provides additional information on key topics. The following IFC Performance Standards are applicable: PS1: Assessment and Management of Environmental and Social Risks and Impacts; PS2: Labour and Working Conditions; PS3: Resource Efficiency and Pollution Prevention; PS4: Community Health, Safety and Security; PS5: Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement; PS6: Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Management of Living Natural Resources; and PS8: Cultural Heritage. A comprehensive Environmental and Social Management System is in place and TMGO is committed to meet Good International Practice.
