This joint venture between the Government and AES Kribi Holding BV will ensure reliable energy supply during the dry season as it will operate at higher production levels when hydropower, which supplies 77% of Cameroon's power needs, becomes less certain.

Additionally, the plant will replace plans to build other inefficient thermal power plants, thus having a lower environmental impact.
