Cameroon/Chad: EC/AfDB agree interconnection grant
The European Commission has agreed to provide a grant of around €30m ($34m) to the African Development Bank (AfDB) for a 225kV interconnection project between Cameroon and Chad. The deal was agreed on 20 December but only announced in January. The project involves a 700km line from Ngaoundéré to Maroua in Cameroon and on to N’djamena and a second 250km line connecting Maroua to Mogrom in Chad and then completing the loop at N’djamena.
