Wovwe mini-hydro power plant was commissioned in 1995 with a total capacity of 4.5MW.
EGENCO has embarked on a project to expand the power plant. A feasibility study for Wovwe Phase II has revealed that EGENCO can double the capacity of the station by constructing another power plant at the same site with a capacity of 4.5MW. The project is expected to be completed between the years 2023/2024.
Wovwe Phase II will double the power generation capacity of the Wovwe Hydro Power Plant from the current 4.5MW to 9MW. Once completed, the power plant will supply half of the power needed by the whole of the Northern Region, which, currently stands at 20MW.
