Jointly owned by the State of Cameroon and EDF, KHPC will be in charge of the development, construction and operation of the Kikot hydroelectric development.
With an installed power of 500 MW, this renewable energy infrastructure using the abundant Sanaga waters will be the largest dam in the country, just above the Nachtigal dam, and its 420 MW of power, currently at the final phase. The Kikot construction site is expected to begin in 2025 with a scheduled commissioning in 2030.
A new step has been reached in the implementation of the Kikot project. The creation of the KHPC follows the Constitutive General Assembly that was held in Yaoundé in the presence of the 2 parties involved in this important industrial project.
Valérie Levkov, Africa and Middle East Director at the International Division of the EDF Group, signed the shareholders' agreement with Mr. Louis-Paul Motaze, Minister of Finance in Cameroon.
Congratulated for the preparatory work accomplished, Marlène Biessy was appointed, on this occasion, KHPC General Director. The local teams are now mobilized and ready to enter the operational phase!
Present in Cameroon since 2014, EDF supports the country in achieving its commitments to meet the challenge of energy transition. After Nachtigal, the Kikot dam will enable Cameroon to benefit from a sufficient, reliable and renewable electricity.
