Project Objectives

The objectives of the study are : 1) To investigate the feasibility of transmitting the Ethiopian hydropower surplus for replacing the thermal generation in the Sudan, thereby the countries share the benefits thus generated (savings in fuel and spare parts as a result of replacing thermal generation in the Sudan by Ethiopian hydropower). 2. To design cost effective electrical network of acceptable reliability and environmental impacts for interconnecting the power systems of Ethiopia and the Sudan towards the optimal operation of the two power systems.
