In September 2015, ELKAP was ready for take-off!

To make it happen, we have

  • established a functioning Congolese development agency: ELKAP ASBL;
  • created a technical team consisting of local engineers and operators;
  • conducted roadshows and information campaigns, participatory meetings and trainings for the population;
  • bought, cleared through customs, and transported to the site all material needed for the construction of the hydro-electric power plant;
  • prepared and maintained the access ways;
  • constructed the dam at the sight of the Rushish cataracts;
  • put in place the double penstock pipes which bring the water from the dam to the turbines;
  • constructed the turbine house;
  • installed the turbines and the generator;
  • built ELKAP ASBL’s headquarter in Ntita;
  • provided technical training to local personnel;
  • established a management team.
  • built the whole transmission line connecting the Rushish cataracts to Musumba, Ntita, and Kapanga.
