APA-Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) Ethiopia on Wednesday launched a hydro-power project
over the River Nile with around $4.7 billion investment, which is bound to scare
Egypt of its interests on the River Nile.

It is the first time that Ethiopia has launched such a huge hydro-power project
with such huge amount of investment.

The power plant, expected to generate around 5,250 megawatt, is named the
‘Millennium Dam On the Nile’, which claims to be the first of its kind in Africa
that will cover 40 kilometres square over the River Nile.

  1. Great news for Ethiopia, though possibly politcally troubling for those further down the Nile. Do you know where the hydro-electric systems are being manufactured for the project?

  2. That is a good news! Egypt used Somalia against Ethiopia since 1960 and it was a good time buying tactic. Now, since Ethiopia has tamed Somalia, it is turing North.Let us see the reponse of Pharoah’s jet fighters.
