Merowe and Roseires dams in Sudan

Global infrastructure has undergone a rapid transformation and rural electrification is a critical driver of progress for underserved developing nations.

Sudan has one of the lowest electrification levels in Africa, with many rural areas being disconnected from grids. The Merowe and Roseries dams were built to generate hydroelectric power and electricity intended to further the industrial and agricultural development of the country.

ACG contributed to the construction of the dams and the hydropower stations. The Merowe dam is the largest contemporary hydropower project in Africa, providing 6,500 gigawatt hours of annual energy generation.

Hydropower generated from the dams increases electrification levels in rural areas and villages, provides basic lighting and electricity and allows for uninterrupted services from clinics, hospitals, schools and other necessities.
