Liberia: GOL, World Bank Break Grounds for Power Plant

The Liberian Government and the World Bank Tuesday broke grounds for the construction of a 10 Megawatt Power Plant Project at the Liberia Electricity Corporation sub-office on the Bushrod Island, outside Monrovia.

The Country Manager of World Bank, Madam Inguna Dobraja said the power plant is part of the bank's support to Liberia's energy sector.

She said the power plant project is valued at US$225 million, and pointed out that the energy sector is key to national development.

She said the plant will help expand LEC services by providing reliable energy to the people of Liberia.

Madam Dobraja lauded the Management of LEC for the progress at its Bushrod Island sub-station.

For his part, LEC Deputy Chief Executive Director for Planning Joseph T. Mayah commended the World Bank for its corporation.

He said the power plant will essentially contribute to the provision of electricity to the people of Liberia.

The plant is being constructed through a grant aid from the people of Japan.
