In his report to the Board of Directors of TRANSCO CLSG at its 25th seating, General Manager Mohammed Sherif disclosed that despite the challenges in the project implementation, particularly the Covid-19 pandemic, the CLSG project achieved major milestones.
Mr. Sherif informed the Board that the year 2021 has not been significantly different from 2020, as the project is still faced with the challenges associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. However, despite these setbacks, he was pleased to share the good news on the key milestones achieved by the CLSG Project in the year.
The General Manager said to date, the overall progress of the CLSG Project is estimated at 93%. He said the line section from Man to Monrovia has been fully energized and that the synchronization with the Mt Coffee Hydro Power Plant (HPP) is ongoing. He added that the 132 kV connection between the CLSG substation in Monrovia and the Liberia Electricity Company (LEC) Mt Coffee HPP is completed at 100% while additional tests are ongoing on the 66kV Busbar differential protection at the request of LEC.
Mr. Sherif continued that the line sections from Monrovia to Mano in Liberia, from Mano to Kenema, Bikongor, and Bumbuna up to Yiben in Sierra Leone are all completed at 100% and await sequential commissioning from Liberia before they are energized. The line section from Yiben to Kamakwie and Linsan in Guinée is about 74% complete, while the section from Yekepa to Nzerekoreh is about 95% complete.
