dam in KAtanga
Access to a hydroelectric site is the first step and it makes technical feasibility studies and field work possible. In 2015 the hydroelectric site was identified by helicopter due to no excising road or path leading there. KIPAY has constructed a 50 km road to make the site accessible by vehicles and to supply equipment for the technical feasibility studies.
The nearest village Kalera is located 50 km from the site. To save time and be efficient KIPAY established Camp Sombew in September 2016. The camp has hosted KIPAY representatives, local workers from the Kalera village and KIPAY contractors (Rubaco, Ingérop, Knight Piésold)
