South Sudan to receive 195 transformer stations

South Sudan, Juba: The African Development Bank (AfDB) has authorised a supplementary loan of $14.57 million to rehabilitate and expand the electricity distribution network in Juba, the capital of South Sudan.

The project that was granted four years ago includes the purchase and installation of 195 transformer stations as well as the construction of new transmission lines, and installation of 20,000 prepaid meters for connecting 20,000 new customers, reports ESI-Africa.

This project will contribute to reduce the inefficiencies of the network and increase electricity access in South Sudan, which is among the poorest countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
