he purpose of the project is to enhance the use of the Gurara river by storing, regulating and controlling the flow of the river and its main affluent. These delivery systems will be used to generate 30 MW (first phase) and 300 MW (second phase) of hydro-electric power to be fed into the national grid. The project ambition is also to develop at least 20,000 hectares of irrigable land downstream of the dam.
