Project Brief - THE KIVUWATT PROJECT - Rwanda


The financing is for Phase I of the KivuWatt project, an integrated-methane gas extraction and power production facility. Phase I involves gas extraction using a floating barge located approximately 12.5 km offshore from the city of Kibuye. The extracted gas will be further processed and pumped to shore for use in a power plant via a submerged floating pipeline. Power will be produced by methane powered reciprocating engine generator sets with combined capacity of 25 MW, net output. Phase II includes an expansion of the facilities designed in Phase I and will produce an additional 75 MW of power.
