The Project to Strengthen and Extend Cameroon?s Electricity Transmission and Distribution Networks is an investment project covering eight of the country?s ten regions. It stems from Cameroon?s Rural Electrification Master Plan (PDER), the studies on which were financed by the Bank, and the World Bank-funded National Energy Action Plan for Poverty Reduction (PANERP). The project is fully in keeping with the ongoing electrification programme backed by Cameroon?s donor community and aims to strengthen and extend power transmission and distribution systems to 423 new localities with almost 335,000 new consumers, especially rural dwellers. The project consists of the following components: (i) rehabilitation and strengthening of production units; (ii) rehabilitation and extension of HV, MV and LV networks; (iii) connections, public lighting, operating and maintenance equipment; (iv) IES, IEC, MCE and training program; (v) studies of the 225 kV Memve'ele-Yaoundé line; (vi) project control and supervision; and (vii) the administration and management of the project. The total project cost is estimated at UA 58.99 million and its implementation will span a 60-month period from 2010.
The sectoral objective of the project is to increase people's access to reliable electricity, and to improve the country's economic and social development framework. Its specific objective is to strengthen the electricity distribution system, by strengthening and extending transmission networks, and to serve new rural and urban locations and to make connections.
The direct project beneficiaries are estimated at around 3.4 million inhabitants (2014), including a little over 332 000 new consumers. The main project beneficiaries will be the population, local communities, industries and commerce, private and government institutions, all of which will have improved access to reliable electricity for domestic, industrial and commercial use.
