The Ministry of Energy of the Democratic Republic of Congo will host a one-day tour to the Inga I and II hydropower plants on Friday, 10th October 2008.

This forms part of the Infrastructure Partnerships for African Development (iPAD) Central Africa conference and exhibition that takes place in Kinshasa, DRC from 7-9 October 2008.  This is an ideal opportunity for power sector professionals to engage directly with DRC Government and utility officials about the on-going maintenance and operations of Inga plus the developments of Inga III and Grand Inga, which, if realized, can generate enough power for the whole African continent.

Space is limited and open to all iPAD Central Africa conference delegates at Euro 500.   Please contact Jimina Schmidt  on to register or visit
