The Mekele-Dallol & Semera-Afdera Power Transmission Supply for Industrial Development and Access Scale-up Project (MSPIAP) is an integrated project and includes transmission lines, substation & rural electrification components. This project aims to improve the socio-economic development and livelihood of the population of beneficiary regions through increased access to affordable & sustainable electricity supply and improvement in service delivery. The two 230kV transmission lines are extended from existing 230 kV substations. The proposed new transmission lines will considerably expand the high voltage transmission system and increase the power transfer capacity from the existing and future generating sources to the major load centers in the country. The project will end in 2019.
The principal objectives of this project are to: (i) provide sustainable power for the population of the North and North Eastern parts of the country and (ii) support potash mining industries and Rural Electrification.
The project will benefit an estimated 36 rural towns/villages (estimated 102,000 people) directly in the beneficiary regions from improved access to electricity, basic social services. The project will also support provision of adequate and reliable grid based power supply to potash industries as well as other small business. The program will have a direct positive social benefit, enabling improved education opportunities for women and school age children, improving access to health services, creating productive/livelihood opportunities and employment through expanded service and improved private sector activities.
