Grand Inga – Too big to be constructed ?

For 60 years, in spite of the potential of the site, all previous schemes required considerable pre-investments in large civil works, making the first MW expensive. • It was found that the minimum economically feasible size was 7000 MW. In 2011, Aecom-EDF was mandated by SNEL, with the funding of ADB, to optimize the Grand Inga site, considering the proposed Inga 3 project.

Grand Inga 2013 Feasibility Study : Main Results
A new approach has been proposed, making the development of the Grand Inga economically feasible in the very short term: • Innovative, flexible and economical staging identified • Each phase as small as 2,000 MW at competitive costs • Phase size can be adjusted to adapt to planned demand and export opportunities

Grand Inga 2013 Feasibility Study : Main Results
• Inga 3 replaced by a simpler Grand Inga first phase at low head • with no closure of the Congo River and no tunnels, using an open channel • Integrating the final development of Grand Inga when river dam is built in the future  Turbine-generators designed to operate at low and high head  Bundi Dam and intake structures designed to be raised in the future
