PUBLIC NOTICE – CONSTRUCTION OF 225KV TRANSMISSION LINE FROM BRIKAMA POWER STATION TO SALAGI FOREST PARK

PUBLIC NOTICE – CONSTRUCTION OF 225KV TRANSMISSION LINE FROM BRIKAMA POWER STATION TO SALAGI FOREST PARK

The Government of The Gambia (GOTG) has received financing from the World Bank to implement the Project called Gambia Electricity Restoration and Modernization Project (GERMP); this Project will construct a high voltage 225 kV transmission and distribution line that will start from the Brikama power station to Jabang at the edge of the Salagi Forest Park, where a 225/33 kV substation will be built.

For orientation, the transmission line will start at the edge of the Salagi Forest Park and run along the buffer zone of the Forest up to the Forest billboard at Jamwelleh about 1.8 km off the Sukuta-JambangJelly Highway. From the Forest billboard the line will run toward the border between Mariama Kunda and Jabang, Labakoreh, Yuna and Latrya before turning left, crossing the Sukuta-Jambangjelleh Highway toward the proposed Solar Power Plant in Jambur.

The line will go along the Bamba and Nyambai Forest Parks, crossing the Brikama-Serrekunda Highway to the Brikama power plant.

We want to remind the public that a consultant was hired in 2019/20 to develop the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) to compensate all those persons whose land and other properties will be affected along this corridor. The Consultant met and interviewed only 71 affected persons out of the 490 identified affected plots of land along the corridor.

Therefore, any person(s) who have properties along the corridor but have never been contacted by NAWEC or any of its Contractors and Consultants should endeavor to contact the Alkalolu of the communities through which the line will pass to ascertain whether his/her property has been affected.

Alternatively, all affected persons should immediately contact NAWEC Project Implementation Unit (PIU) or the SD-Focus Ltd, the Consultant in charge of implementing the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) in order to be counted for compensation. SD-Focus Ltd can be contacted on telephone 7488510/9204411/3600825/5044127), or at its office at Latriya. Specifically, the persons listed in the Table below have appeared in the RAP report developed in 2019/20, but have not been reported to SD-Focus Ltd for verification.

In addition, anyone who believes that he/she should have been included in the socio-economic census but was not included is also urged to contact the project’s Grievance Redress Committee (GRC) through one of the contacts listed below.

This is important because when the construction of the line commences, any impacted land and properties along the identified corridor will be demolished, and where the respective owners are not known, no compensation can obviously be made.

If you have questions or concerns about this, please contact the project’s GRC. You can also visit the PMU office, which is located at Emporium Complex, 114 Kairaba Avenue, Kanifing Municipality, The Gambia.

For further information, contact the GERMP Project Management Unit:

PRESS RELEASE – NAWEC moves to address delays in meter shipments

PRESS RELEASE

NAWEC moves to address delays in meter shipments

 

NAWEC acknowledges that responses to meter applications are taking longer than normal. This is due to the worldwide Covid-related supply chain challenges, which are disrupting shipments everywhere, including meters and other components.

NAWEC is therefore reassessing its supply chain strategies to make them more resilient. Measures being taken to improve the situation include:

  1. Increasing stock levels and warehouse capacities.
  2. Identifying a wider range of suppliers, including closer to home.
  3. Performing regular supplier audits.
  4. Considering alternative logistic options, including via Dakar Port whenever economically justifiable.

To meet the demands of its customers, NAWEC recognizes the need to act more flexibly and quickly. Thanks to the new Management Information System currently being installed, NAWEC’s various departments will be able to interact more quickly. This will allow the group to deliver results that better serve its customer’s needs. For example, it will also help the company move towards a cashless business environment. The new Information Management System will also help NAWEC better track inventory and thus avoid delays. Coupled with the above-mentioned strategies NAWEC is confident that its response rates to meter applications will increase significantly once new supply sources and routes are in place.

Please be aware that while the IMS system is up and running, it is common throughout the world to have occasional glitches as such systems are initially put in place. Please be assured that this is normal and that NAWEC will be working hard to remove any that occurs as quickly as possible.

NAWEC wishes to thank its clients for their continued cooperation and patience while it embarks on major reforms. These will positively transform the way it does business and serves its customers.

NAWEC values all comments and feedback from its customers.  This information, both positive and negative, will help the organization continually make improvements.
