Voith’s small hydro business head Klaus Schädler said: "We look forward to putting our ideas into practise and to foster our collaboration for renewable energy in Uganda.

"Hydropower is the largest and oldest form of renewable energy generation and is used worldwide."

"Our discussions have been very constructive and successful and we are happy to be part of the project supporting reliable power production and sustainable economic development in the region."

In a bid to develop the plant, Voith is working in close collaboration with US-based clean energy company Berkeley Energy who is the major shareholder of the project.
