Cameroon Infrastructure Report

BMI View:   Cameroon's construction sector will record strong growth over the next five years, supported by progress on major power and transport infrastructure projects. We anticipate annual average construction sector growth of 10.2% between 2014 and 2018. Progress is also being made in the business environment, with the successful implementation and expansion of the country's PPP programme.

We expect progress on a number of large projects to drive strong growth in Cameroon's construction sector.

  • In July, French major EDF signed an agreement with the Cameroon government to develop a 360MW hydropower plant located at Nachtigal Falls on the Sanaga River.

EDF is providing 40% of the funds, with the remainder coming from the International Finance Corporation (with 34%) and the Cameroon government (26%).

Financing is hoped to be secured by mid-2015, with Standard Bank having been appointed to assist with fundraising.

  • In June 2014 UK energy company Joule Africa signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a 100MW solar power plant. The project is due to be completed in 2015 and commissioned in 2017. Joule is already active in Cameroon through the 850MW Katsina Ala River hydropower plant. In August 2013, authorisation was given to construction of the project. A full feasibility covering the financial and engineering side of the project was carried out by Lahmeyer International over a 12-month period. The first phase will see the construction of a 450MW unit, with an estimated cost of USD1bn. The project...
