Nachtigal Dam Central Africa: Construction progresses at a rate of 14.5% in just 5 months

The hydroelectric company Nachtigal, the administrator of the project in September 2022, stated that the project has already been completed at 74.5%.

Last April, progress was estimated at 60%. Over the past few months, construction work has accelerated greatly, with the construction of the dam that will meet the energy consumption of the central region of Cameroon being completed at 74.5%.

La construction of the Nachtigal hydroelectric damlocated in Batchenga, is progressing at a steady pace. In the past five months, they have developed remarkably, according to data officialised by the Nachtigal hydro power company (Nhpo) at the end of September 2022.

La società che gestisce il progetto indica sul suo sito web che i lavori di ingegneria civile sono già stati completati per il 74,5%. Per il resto, il tasso di avanzamento registrato dalla prima valutazione di aprile è del 14,5%.

In altre parole, il tasso di avanzamento registrato dalla prima valutazione da’aprile 2005 è del 14,5%, dato che all’epoca il tasso di esecuzione del cantiere era stato valutato al 4 60%. Questo è il miglior progresso dei lavori sul sito fino ad oggi.

This was the best progress of work on the site in the last ten months. In fact, at the end of the year 2021, when Energy Minister Gaston Eloundou Essomba visited the site, the completion rate was still at 51.7%.

The civil works still have to be completed, as does the electromechanical part, which has a completion percentage of 69.5%.

As far as the transmission line and the operating site lots are concerned, they have already been completed. The least that can be said is that work on the Nachtigal dam site has never progressed as quickly as it has in the last ten months.

Over the past two and a half years, the work programme had been severely disrupted by several contingencies, including the Covid-19 pandemic, which
inevitably caused delays in the execution of the work, there were also numerous strikes by employees demanding better working conditions.

The Nhpc company has been challenged on several occasions by NGOs and the affected local communities living in the area.

Le contestazioni al progetto sono legate all’impatto che avrà la diga sull’ambiente e per altri accordi che l’azienda aveva fatto con le popolazioni locali e che non ha rispettato.
