Liberia: revival of unused hydropwer plant

Liberia could see a revival for one of its unused hydropower plants with the help of Brazilian mining giant Vale SA.

The country’s president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said that while many issues are still pending, discussions are continuing. She said, “Some of these [issues] have to do with external partners.”

The dam, the Mt Coffee Hydropower Plant, could increase the country’s power generation by 1,000 MW. Sirleaf added: “I can assure you that by next month, we hope to conclude the Vale deal.”
