The Nachtigal Hydro-Power Company is expected to provide one-third of Cameroon’s Energy by 2020, and to supply power to the aluminum plan in Edea. The company will in the Months ahead complete the construction of 420 megawatts power dam on the river Sanaga. It is estimated to cover a distance of 40 miles transmission line.

God is still saying something.
