Press Release

Cameroon's Lom Pangar Project to Provide Power to Millions
The World Bank approved US$132 million in zero-interest financing for the Lom Pangar Hydropower Project to support economic development and significantly improve the electricity supply to homes and businesses.
Fact Sheet: In English | En Francais

Fact Sheet

  • The Lom Pangar Hydropower Project (LPHP) consists of a regulating dam, a hydroelectric power plant at the foot of the dam, a transmission line between the power plant and the Eastern Network, a rural electrification scheme along this transmission line, environmental and social measures, and support for technical assistance and project management. Associated investments include the adaptation of the Chad-Cameroon Pipeline, which is outside the scope of this project per se, but required for the project to come to fruition. 
  • The Lom Pangar regulating dam will be located on the River Lom in Cameroon’s Eastern Region - about 4 km downstream of the confluence with the Pangar River, and 13 km upstream of the confluence with the Sanaga River.
  • The LPHP hydroelectric power plant at the foot of the dam will generate an additional 30 MW of low-cost, hydropower for rural electrification of the Eastern Region.
  • By storing water during wet months and releasing it during dry periods, the reservoir will increase the guaranteed water flow to the Sanaga River from 720 to 1,040 cubic meters per second throughout the year, thereby reducing seasonal variability.
  • In the short-term, the LPHP will increase the year-round production capacity of the two existing Edea and Song Loulou hydropower plants on the Sanaga River by 120 MW.
  • In the medium-term, the LPHP opens up the possibility of incrementally constructing a cascade of downstream hydropower plants on the Sanaga River. While not directly attributable to the project, potential follow-up investments in downstream hydropower will improve electricity generation services for households and industries in Cameroon and beyond.
