Given this situation, the industrial companies and great electricity consu- mers, cannot optimize their production, let alone, expand their business. This is as paradoxical as embarrassing for a country that has the second hydroelectric potential in Africa.Taking into account these undeniable advan- tages and desiring to allow Cameroon to step up energy production to 3,000 megawatts by 2020, the Cameroonian government, at the President Paul Biya’s behest, has undertaken effi- cient actions in the recent years.ACTIONS IN PROGRESSBesides the hydroelectric dam at Lom Pangar whose partial impoundment was held in September 2015, the government has underta- ken:• The construction of a hydroelectric develop- ment of 211 megawatts (MW) capacity, combi- ned with a power transmission line of 225 kilo- volts (KV) and stations at Memve’ele, River Ntem;• The construction of a hydroelectric power plant of 15 megawatts (MW) at Mekin on the River Dja and construction of an outgoing power line of 110kilovolts (KV).In addition to these projects whose implementa- tion is already underway, the government and its partners are actively preparing a second genera- tion infrastructures production and power trans- mission programme including:• The increase in the capacity installed of the Kribi gas-fired power station from 216 to 330 megawatts;Drinking water supply project and decontamination process in semi-urban locationsTECHNICAL ASPECTCONSTRUCTION AND REHABILITATION OF DRINKING WATER NETWORKS IN 19 COUNCILS OF CAMEROON IN HE REGIONS CONCERNEDPROJECT COSTABOUT40 BILLION FCFAFUNDING• STATE OF CAMEROON• AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK• FEICOM
