Studies to investigate feasibility of hydro in Guyana

27 March 2014

Guyana and Brazil have agreed to jointly study the hydropower potential of the Upper and Middle Mazaruni areas in Guyana.

A pre-feasibility study is expected to start in early April and will investigate the potential for a 3000MW project in Upper Mazaruni, and a 1500MW project in the Middle Mazaruni areas.

If the projects are given the go ahead, they would be the first operational hydropower projects in the country.
