IADB helps fund refurb at Peligre plant, Haiti

9 December 2008

Output from the 54MW plant is half of its potential due to the age of the equipment and reservoir sedimentation reducing the volume of water available for hydro power. IADB said that the grant was for the first phase of a US$40M rehabilitation programme.

The plant was built in the early 1970s and over recent years has contributed approximately half of the electricity distributed by state-owned utility Electricite d'Haiti (EDH).

The five-year long rehabilitation programme will be in three phases - one for each of the plant's three turbines. The following two phases of are to be funded by IADB and the OPEC Fund for International Development.
