NYAMAGASANI II MINI HYDRO POWER PROJECT

The Project

The Nyamagasani II project is a 5.0 MW run-of-river hydro power plant utilizing the hydro power potential of the river Nyamagasani as it drops 150m in a series of rapids, in and around the village of Kyarumba in the foothills of the Rwenzori mountains in Western Uganda. The project will be connected to the Ugandan national grid.

The project is in mid-stages of development.
