upgrade programme for the power transmission networks across the national territory.
The programme aims at:
• Making the interconnections for the increase of electricity supply towards the large urban centres and provide the N-1 security of the supply;
• Securing and increasing the supply to the net- work transmission for Douala and Yaoundé;
• Strengthening and securing the three intercon- nected North, South and East networks;
• Ensuring the outgoing power from the produc- tion facilities of Kribi, Mekin, Memve’ele, Nachtigal, among others, to consumer markets under conditions that ensure the reliability and stability of the supply;
• Modernizing and upgrading the dispatching of the interconnected South network, and buil- ding a dispatching to drive the interconnected North network;
• Setting the infrastructures backbone of electric interconnection with neighbouring countries.
The programme should cost about 940 billion FCFA and includes four main phases, the first of which is to increase the processing capacity of the two critical stations at Oyom Abang in Yaoundé and Bekoko in Douala for an estimated cost of 10 billion FCFA. The second phase, from 2017 to 2018 is about continuing the implemen- tation of the Three-year Emergency Plan and consists in serving and surrounding Douala and Yaoundé, mainly with a view to a coverage of
