A Chinese-built dam in Cote d’Ivoire has officially started power generation. The Soubre hydropower station is located in the west of the country and was constructed by China’s SINO Hydro company. It is currently the largest hydro-power project in Cote d’Ivoire. Upon completion the station is expected to boost the country’s entire capacity by about 10 percent . Cote d’Ivoire already has six hydropower stations and four more are due to be constructed as part of a national policy to attain a capacity of 4,000 MW by the year 2020.
