SN Power completes Investment in Bujagali Hydropower Project July 2018
The Bujagali Hydropower Project is a 255 MW run-of-river hydropower plant located on the Victoria Nile in the Republic of Uganda.
Bujagali Energy Limited (BEL) owns and operates the Bujagali hydropower plant, commissioned in 2012.
The Bujagali Hydropower Project (BHP) is the largest power generation facility in Uganda and nearly doubled the peak electricity capacity of Uganda when it was commissioned in 2012, eliminating load-shedding in Kampala and providing a reliable power supply to meet increasing power demand in Uganda.
BHP is located near by the Lake Victoria, approximately 12 km north of the town of Jinja and 8 km downstream from the much older Nalubaale and Kiira hydropower plants. The facility consists of a 30 m high dam with a concrete gravity dam section, three clay core and rock filled shell sections, two spillways and a powerhouse with five 51 MW Kaplan turbines
The project has a sovereign-guaranteed long-term PPA.
