Energy from the sources of the Nile
The Bujagali Hydroelectric Power Project, which went into operation at the Bujagali Falls in Uganda in mid-June 2012, is the country's largest ever run-of-the-river power station. It is also the largest in all of sub-Saharan Africa. The five-turbine power plant at the source of the Nile now generates more than 250 MW of electricity to supply around five million households. The project is a true model of success ‒ for other African nations as well who want to generate sustainably clean and affordable electricity.
New Touch Engineering information portal
The Bujagali hydroelectric plant project is just one example of Munich Re's many global activities in the engineering sector.
In our new online information portal, Touch Engineering, we present other ambitious projects, and look at their special features and challenges and the made-to-measure solutions our experts came up with. To mark the launch of Touch Engineering, we are also presenting the following projects:
