Electricite de Guinee developed Kaleta Hydroelectric Power Station on the Konkoure River in west central Guinea, about 87 miles from the capital city of Conarky. The hydro power plant has 240 MW. This project was previously part of the larger Gambia River Basin Development Organisation (OMVG) project involving the four countries, namely The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal. Guinea, however, decided to develop Kaléta as a stand-alone. The completion of the Kaleta scheme increases Guinea’s hydroelectric generating capacity from 2012 levels of 128 MW to 368 MW. The EPC contract was signed in August 2011 and CIWEC began constructing the project in April 2012. The contractor completed the facility in September 2015, one year ahead of its planned completion date of 2016. Electricite de Guinee is project owner. Chinese state-owned China International Water & Electric Corporation (CIWEC) is the EPC contractor for the project.
