Transformational Partnership: Guinea Bissau starts detailed feasibility and design works on the 20 MW Saltinho Run-Off-River Hydropower Project

Under the guiding motto "NOW OR NEVER", the Guinea Bissau Sustainable Energy International Conference, held from 6 to 7 December 2018 in Bissau, had called for USD 700 million of investment. Now, another important mile-stone has been achieved. As a result of a competetive bidding process, the consortia COBA Consultores de Engenharia e Ambiete/Artelia Eau & Environnement (Portugal) was awarded with a 1,5 million Euro contract to develop a bankable feasibility study and a detailed engineering and design study on the Saltinho Run-Off-River Hydropower Project with an estimated capacity of 20 MW. The project is located in Guinea Bissau on the Corubal River, around 100 km south-east of the capital Bissau.

Liberian Hydrological Services Open Database

Since 2011, the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate is assisting the Liberian Hydrological Service in upgrading the Liberian hydrometric network. The project established 10 hydrometric stations in the principal river basins and it trained the LHS staff. After 30-years long break, the flows of Liberian rivers again are gauged and hydrological data are available to users. Continuous collection of hydrological data is particularly important for the ongoing and future hydropower studies and projects.
