Project Clean Technology

Renewable Green Energy

Our project involves

The project involves the design, construction, commissioning and operation of a 50 MW geothermal power plant under a Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT) project financing structure. The project is the first phase of the cumulative generation capacity of 150MW being targeted by the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) which is expected to be completed by 2024. The project is located about 100 km Southeast of Addis Ababa in the Oromia Regional State covering a 588 km2 concession area with an estimated potential of 2 GW. The project will include a sub-station and 11 km transmission line to connect to an existing 132KV transmission line. Half of the costs associated with the connection to the grid of the power plant will be reimbursed by the Ethiopia Electricity Power (EEP).
