The Mount Coffee Hydropower Plant is a hydroelectric facility built in the 1960s. During the Civil war in the 1990s the rebels seized the area around the dam, preventing the slice gates of the dam spillway from being opened at a critical time, causing a breach to a section of the Dam resulting in failure. Since that time, the power plant has been pillaged, leaving only the bare structure.
The Rehabilitation of Mount Coffee Hydropower Plant project will transform the existing site to a working hydroelectric scheme that will provide cost effective electricity to Monrovia and the surrounding areas.
Dawnus International secured the Enabling Works phase of the project in December 2013 with an initial 13 week construction period. Subsequent additional works were awarded that extended the programme duration to September 2014. A summary of the activities are as follows:
