Maintenance work on Congo power plant complete

Maintenance work on the Republic of Congo’s Côte Matève power plant is now complete, according to Louis Kanoha Elenga, the director general of the Congo Electric Power (E2C), the national electricity company.

This will allow inhabitants of Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire, who have faced intermittent loadshedding for the past six weeks, to have access to electricity for end of year celebrations.

Executed by ENI-Congo, the work consisted of renovating one of the plant’s turbines to allow it to operate optimally and to supply its 300 MW nominal capacity, which constitutes 60% of the national electricity production.
