Roseires Dam Rehabilitation Project (Sudan)


The OPEC Fund for International Development

Titre : Roseires Dam Rehabilitation Project (Sudan)

Pays : Soudan

Secteur Agriculture & Agro-Industry

Date d’approbation : 6/12/2003

The Roseires Dam diverts water from the Blue Nile to large- and small-scale irrigation schemes extending from Roseires town to Khartoum. In addition, the dam serves a nearby hydropower station that provides the Sudan with around 40% of its electricity. Inspections have revealed that the stainless steel-clad liners of the dam’s five deep-sluice gates have eroded considerably. This loan will co-finance full-scale rehabilitation of the sluices to prevent breakdowns. In order to insure the reliability and safety of the entire deep sluice installation, the hydro-mechanical plant and all associated equipment will be extensively refurbished.
