  38. 38. COMESAINVESTMENTTEASER2011 41 Industry / Sector Energy Objective • To generate electrical power to improve economic and social development of the COMESA region and beyond; • To provide relatively cheap electrical power input for the region; • To contribute to energy security of the region; • To increase the access to electric power; • To contribute to wealth creation and poverty reduction in the region. Project Description The projects are designed to tap the natural renewable hydroelec- tric energy from the Congo River networks located on the West Coast of Southern Africa. SNEL, which is electricity utility of the Democratic Republic of Congo, had submitted Inga 3 power sta- tion site to generate 3500 megawatts for Western Power Corridor (WESTCOR) development. SNEL also owns and operates the two existing power stations, Inga 1 and Inga 2. Western Power Corridor (WESTCOR) was formed in February 2003 by the national utility companies South Africa’s Eskom, the DRC’s SNEL, Angola’s Empresa Nacional de Electricidade, Namibia’s NamPower and Botswana Power. In a later development, the DRC rejected the regional development programme offered by WESTCOR and planned to develop Inga 3 on its own. In this regard, BHP Billiton was selected through a bid- ding process in 2009 to develop the Inga 3 plant with a generating capacity of 2,500MW. BHP Billiton will now substitute WESTCOR in carrying out the project. The power produced by Inga 3 will be supplied to BHP’s proposed aluminium smelter which will require about 2000 megawatts. The rest of Inga 3 which is 500 megawatts will be supplied to the southern African power grid. Moreover, the size and constant flow rate of Congo River provides a huge hydroelectric potential particularly at the Inga site, which is assessed at 44000 megawatts. Four actions are on-going for Inga side development. They are rehabilitation of Inga 1 and Inga 2, feasibility studies of Inga 3 and physical implementation of Inga 3, Inga hydro feasibility studies and regional interconnection feasibility.

  39. 39. COMESAINVESTMENTTEASER2011 42 Expected Results Generating the huge capacity of 2500 megawatts in Inga 3 and about 390000 megawatts for Grand Inga would significantly Increase the current install capacity of the COMESA region of ap- proximately 38000 megawatts and would increase the capacity of the region to meet its growing power demands and with potential to export beyond the region Total Amount The Inga 3 project is estimated to cost around USD 3.5 billion; Feasibility studies for the Inga side which include Grand Inga esti- mated to around USD 15 million project; The indicative cost of Grand Inga is USD 55 billion. On-going Related Activities in the COMESA Region Some hydro projects in some COMESA countries like Ethiopia Action Required or Implementation Ar- rangements It is envisaged that BHP intends to develop Inga 3 power project in collaboration with the DRC, through a Public Private Partnership Status It is envisaged that the initial concept studies, related to the smelt- er and the Inga 3 power plant have been completed. BHP plans to carry out the feasibility study of the power plant from mid-2011 to mid-2013. The construction will start in 2014; Inga hydro site feasibility studies are yet to be completed; The cost indicated above for Grand Inga is an indicative one; the estimated cost shall be determined upon the completion of the feasibility studies.
