Delays due to water shortage at Aluto Langano project in Ethiopia
Water for the e first phase drilling activity in the Aluto Langano project is slowing down development alongside other issues with financing and infrastructure.
Drilling is seeing delays on the development the Aluto Langano project in Ethiopia. According to local news, the project “is expected to generate some 70 MW electric power for the country. The project was set to be finalised and start power generation by the end of 2018. According to Jin Kimyaki, Chief Representative of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for Ethiopia, however, the project is facing some challenges that are hindering its progress. One of the challenges he mentioned was the availability of water for the first phase drilling activity.”
Water is not the only setback that the project is suffering. The same source details that failing to raise funds for the project and the slow development in the construction of the infrastructure needed (i.e. roads) is creating severe delays.
