Asokh Energy

The Eranove group has partnered with Gabon’s Strategic Investment Find (FGIS) in order to work towards the national aim of meeting all the country’s water and electricity needs, devising a competitive, sustainable plan that would create jobs. To this end, they signed two concession agreements with the government in Gabon: one on 21st October 2016 for design, financing, construction and operation, and one on 26th October 2018 that included the electrical energy sales contracts for the two hydroelectric developments:

  • Asokh Energy (Ngoulmendjim site – 73 MW), a hydroelectric plant on the river Komo, to provide power for Libreville;
  • Louetsi Energy (15 MW), a waterside hydroelectric plant, 450km from the river-side capital of Louetsi, to provide power for the south-west of the country, on the Dibwangui site.

This report presents the results of the assessment of the NGoulmendjim hydropower project using the ESG tool developed by the International Hydropower Association (IHA). This tool assesses the sustainability of a project against ‘good basic practice’. The assessment is based on a site visit and interviews with stakeholders in Gabon and a review of relevant documentation. The assessment was completed by an IHA accredited evaluator.
