Zambia - Kafue Hydroelectric Project - Stage Two (Inglês)

The main features of the Project are: (1) a storage dam across the Kafue River at Itezhi Tezhi consisting of: (a) rock and earthfill dam, 1500 m in length, and 55 m maximum height above riverbed; (b) two diversion tunnels in rock, incorporating regulating structures and gates; and (c) concrete chute spillway with three radial gates; (2) an extension of the Stage I Kafue power station located 250 km downstream from the dam, and consisting of the installation of two 150 MW generating units with ancillary civil works and switchyard extensions; and (3) a 330 kv single circuit transmission line, 60 km in length, connecting the Kafue power station to the Central African Power Coporation (CAPC) grid at Kafue town. In addition to increasing the firm energy of the Kafue power station, the dam would provide sufficient water storage to permit additional water discharges in dry years to reproduce the annual flood cycle downstream of the dam on which present agricultural development depends. The storage could be increased to allow for possible future irrigated agriculture on the Kafue Flats. Regulation of the river flow provided by the Project would also be useful for subsequent development under a third stage of the Kafue Project.
