ECOBARGE started a pre-feasibility development for a pilot plant supplying drinking water and electricity to 4 districts (1200 households) in the town of Baraka. Only 20% of the population of DRC has access to electricity, compared to 75% in developed countries.
Baraka is a town in the territory of FIZI in the province of South Kivu, in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Located on the western shore of Lake Tanganyika. We are starting with water & electricity supply with the intention to scale-up, adding functions (internet, drying and cooling of fish) according to the local needs.
