With funding from the US government energy compact, Millennium Challenge Corporation, EGENCO has now finally acquired a brand new dredger for Kapichira Power Station. The dredger, which was procured in US, has since been assembled and launched at the Kapichira pond. Currently EGENCO is now working on the deposition site where the dredged material will be dumped. The progress on the deposition site is equally impressive. It is expected that once the deposition site is ready, dredging will commence right away. According to recent studies, over 70% of the Kapichira Pond is silted making it very difficult to keep enough water for continued generation of electricity.
