Project Measures:

KfW provided financing for the Regional Transmission Line Rwanda – DRC (BMZ No. 2009 67 505). The six power transmission line sections between Shango and Kibuye are supported by a total of 501 towers which were constructed between 2015 and 2017 by a single EPC contractor. In November 2019, an expert consultant was contracted to inspect the foundations of several towers.
