Title: Feasibility study of the Kafue Gorge Lower Hydroelectric Project. Feasibility report. Volume 1 of 4. Main report. Export trade information

Abstract

This study, conducted by Harza Engineering Company, was funded by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency. The primary objective of the feasibility study was to perform the technical, environmental, economic and financial studies to determine whether or not to proceed with the project. The report covers the preinvestment study that was conducted in 1976 to make comparisons from that period, as well as present and future electrical power demands in order to determine the kinds of equipment and structure needed if the project proceeds. This is Volume I of IV containing the Main Report. It is divided into the following sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Project Setting; (3) Project Description; (4) Construction Schedule and Cost Estimate; (5) Economic and Financial Evaluation; (6) Environmental Assessment.
