The committees are comprised of all the ministries and departments involved in the implementation of the CLSG project including the Ministries of Energy, Finance and Development Planning, Foreign Affairs as well as donor partners. The CLSG project entails the construction of 225 kV lines spanning 1,349 km across the four countries. The project also includes the construction of 11 new substations and expansion of an existing substation in Cote d’Ivoire. In addition, an optical ground wire (OPGW) network and a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, located at the Regional Control Centre (RCC) in Linsan (Guinea), will be implemented to facilitate the operation of the interconnection. The project is one of the five priority projects of the larger West African Power Pool (WAPP) programme being implemented to establish a well- functioning, cooperative, power pooling mechanism for West Africa. It will provide electricity connections to the four countries, utilise the Bumbuna hydropower plant (HPP) in Sierra Leone, and redevelop the Mount Coffee HPP in Liberia.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
