The CLSG Interconnector project involves the construction of a 1,350 km transmission line allowing power exports from Côte d’Ivoire to Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. The interconnector aims to provide these countries with an increased supply of electricity to meet growing demand and to create incentive for hydropower potential, such as in Sierra Leone and Guinea, to be realised. Approximately 12.5% of the total Project cost will finance rural electrification, with an ITF Direct Grant Operation to cover the extra costs of implementing this in Sierra Leone.
For the preparation of this project an EU-AITF grant of up to EUR 3 million was made available for the financing of the feasibility study and the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) as well as the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) and functional bidding documents. In addition, the grant finances the line survey with maps, plan, and profile drawings. This technical assistance is closed.
