8 July 2009 – ESI Africa has received it on good authority that the Western Power Corridor company is set to cease operations.  

Speaking to a senior figure in the company, ESI Africa was told “we will be closing our business ventures”

“Two weeks ago, we were finally advised that Inga 3 returns formally to the DRC Government for their own development.  That signals the end of the Joint Venture aspirations … a rather sad development.”
