PowerChina Exec Urges South Sudan To Invest In Hydropower


A Chinese energy expert on Wednesday urged South Sudan to prioritize long-term investment in hydropower dams in order to expand its nascent power sector to drive its development. Wang Cun, executive director of PowerChina in South Sudan, told Xinhua that the youngest country's development plans are better served by developing hydropower on the White Nile which is clean and less costly compared to the recently commissioned 100MW power plant which is fueled by diesel.
