Multinational - Côte d’Ivoire-Liberia-Sierra Leone and Guinea Electricity Networks Interconnection Project (CLSG) - Appraisal Report
The Côte d'Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea (CLSG) electricity networks interconnection project involves the construction of a 1,357-km-long double circuit high voltage (225 kV) line to connect the national networks of the four countries. The construction of this line is part of the back bone of the Mano River Union countries and the priority projects of the West African Power Pool (WAPP) Master Plan. The project will help establish a dynamic electric power market in the West African sub-region and secure power supply for participating countries which have a comparative advantage in importing power rather than producing it at high costs using their national systems. The project, estimated at an overall cost of UA 331.51million,net of taxes, will be implemented over the 2014-2017 period. The contribution of the Bank Group (ADF, FSF and NTF) amounts to UA 128.15million (or 38.66% of the total cost).
