Bujagali Hydropower Project

Project Overview

  • Universal Project Number (UPN) 09A62BF5
  • Project Name Bujagali Hydropower Project
  • Description The Bujagali Hydropower Project (“the Project” or “Bujagali”) is a proposed hydropower facility on the Victoria Nile in the Republic of Uganda. The Project sponsor is Bujagali Energy Limited (“BEL”), a project-specific company owned by affiliates of Sithe Global Power, LLC and the Aga Khan Fund for Economic development (“AKFED”). Total installed capacity of the Project will consist of five 52.7 MW turbines, which are estimated to supply 1,305 GWh per year to the local electricity grid. The scenario existing prior to the start of the project activity is the operation of existing grid connected power plants and addition of new power sources. The renewable electricity delivered to the grid by Bujagali would have otherwise been generated by the combination of existing and prospective fossil fuel and renewable based grid-connected power plants.
