Ethiopia Map

The Ethiopian government has awarded a US$1.5 million contract to conduct feasibility studies for the 1,060-MW Tams hydropower project.

The work will be done by a joint venture consisting of the state-owned Water Works Design and Supervision Enterprise (WWDSE) and Italy's Electro Consult (ELC).

The Tams hydroelectric plant will be located on the Baro-Akobo River between Bonga and Gambella and would also require the construction of a dam.

The government has also directed WWDSE to conduct studies that could see up to 20 MW of small hydro power developed in Ethiopia's Oromia region.
