Uganda: New owner’s engineer for Isimba
Uganda Electricity Generation Company Limited (UEGCL) has appointed France’s Artelia in association with KKATT Consult Uganda Limited as the new owner’s engineer for the 183MW Isimba hydropower project. UEGCL has been acting as interim owner’s engineer at Isimba since September 2017, when the contract held by India’s Energy Infratech expired.A rift between UEGCL and the Ministry of Energy resulted in tension between Energy Infratech and the main contractors over Isimba and the 600MW Karuma project, which is being developed at the same time.
