The Uganda Electricity Generation Company Ltd. (UEGCL) will send a team of engineers to examine the cracks on the 183-MW Isimba hydropower dam. 

Dhruva Chakravorty, the new project manager of the Isimba power dam, speaking during a tour of the plant, said: “These cracks are already measured and we tend to bring experts to examine this problem and find a solution with suitable planes to work on.”

The contractor of Isimba, China International Water and Electric Corp., recently presented a status report to stakeholders on the project and noted that work was on schedule as planned.

The report was presented to Uganda Electricity Generation Co. Ltd. A new 132-kilovolt transmission line will be constructed to evacuate the generated power and integrate it into the national grid at the Bujagali power station.
