The Federal Ministry of Water Resources says the delay in the connection of power transmission lines to the national grid was responsible for non-completion of the Kashimbilla Multipurpose Dam in Taraba, Pulse reports.
Mr Lawal Muhammad, the Acting Director, Dams and Reservoir Operations, in the ministry, said this on Friday in an interview in Abuja. Muhammad said that the dam and the power generating components of the project had been completed.
He said that the outstanding aspect of the project was the erection of power transmission lines that would convey electricity to the national grid, adding, however, that this was the responsibility of the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing.
Muhammad said that when the dam was completed, it would have the capacity of generating 40 megawatts of hydro-power. He added that the power generation would be a plus to electricity supply to the citizens.
