Social Impact Assessment Report for Isimba Hydro Power Dam

Isimba Power Station is to be constructed on the Victoria Nile, downstream of Bujagali Power Station. The contract for feasibility studies and design was awarded to a consortium of engineering firms FICHTNER and NORPLAN in association with KAGGA & PARTNERS a Ugandan engineering consulting practice. The latter is responsible for managing the preparation of EIA, SIA and resettlement plan of the project. Power to be generated by Isimba hydropower dam would considerably increase the nation=s installed capacity of a renewable and cheaper energy supply. Without this project, 180 MW of electrical supply would be forfeited on the national grid. This would mean continued power scarcity and increased load shedding when supply is outstripped by demand. Isimba HPP is in line with Uganda Government=s continued pursuit for sufficient power supply to match present and foreseeable future national demand.

Environmental Impact Assessment for Isimba Power Transmission Line.

The proposed 132 kV double circuit transmission is in line with Government?s continued pursuit for sufficient power supply to match present and foreseeable future national demand. To connect electricity generated at Isimba HPP to the national grid it is necessary to construct a new 132 kV double circuit powerline from a substation at Isimba dam to existing substation at Bujagali Dam. The 132 kV double circuit transmission line shall run from a substation at Bujagali HPP to a new substation at Isimba hydropower dam in order to connect power generated (at Isimba HPP) to the national grid. The line on steel lattice towers will be 42 km long and have a 30 meter wayleave with a 5 meter right of way, hence a total footprint of 1.26 km2 or 311.353 acres. The transmission line shall follow existing roads in order have easy access during construction and maintenance Download the full report


Hand Over of CDM Plants to Muncipalities

Solid waste management is increasingly becoming a major environmental challenge in Uganda especially in the urban and peri-urban areas. The challenge of solid waste management is set to increase as the country undergoes urbanization, coupled with the increasing population. The urban authorities are overwhelmed and do not have adequate facilities and resources to effectively manage this enormous challenge. Poor waste management poses health and environmental challenges including contribution to Global warming/Climate Change through the emission of Green House Gases (GHG) such as Methane, Carbon dioxide and others. companies/persons licenses to store or transport wastes or own/operate waste treatment/disposal facilities.
