150 MW Zongo II Hydropower Project

Completed

Background

JV of Societe Nationale d'Electricite and SINOHYDRO Corporation Limited developed 150 MW Zongo II Hydropower Project , in Zongo, CONGO (DRC). Sinohydro Bureau 1 Co Ltd was the EPC contractor. Located 130 km from Kinshasa the capital, this dam was built on the Insiki River, which flows 4 km further into the Congo River, in the heart of the Central Kongo Province (formerly Bas-Congo). With an installed generation capacity of 150 MW (an annual output of 850 GWh), the dam will operate with three turbines of equal power. The energy produced will eventually be destined for the city of Kinshasa and the Central Kongo-Province, where populations and businesses are suffering from load shedding problems. The project would ease local residents' life and support Belt and Road Initiative.
