By Chiedi E. Nyenmoh

MONROVIA, September 24 (LINA) - The Management of TRANSCO-CLSG, a regional electricity transmission company, has ended a two-day donor coordination meeting in Monrovia.

Making the disclosure on the UNMIL Radio ‘Coffee Break’ talk show on Friday, TRANSCO-CLSG Country Manager Jerry Taylor said the meeting was aimed at providing updates on progress report to donor partners on activities carried out by the company over the period of one year.

Taylor explained that the company, which is one of the five biggest transmission and distribution projects in electricity in West Africa, is currently connecting four companies in the sub-regional countries of Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia under the West Africa Power Pool (WAPP).

According to him, the company is connecting high tension power station lines of 225 Kilovolts in all of the four countries in a bid to reduce the cost of power for ordinary citizens.

He also revealed that the Transco-CLSG line is a 1,300 kilometre stretch from Danane in Ivory Coast to Yekepa, Buchanan and Mount Coffee in Liberia.

It will also run from Mount Coffee to Bo Waterside and onward to Sierra Leone.

Taylor named the World Bank, African Development Bank, European Development Bank and German Bank as the four financial institutions that are responsible to provide funding to take care of the Environmental, Social Management and Resettlement Action plans in West Africa.

Meanwhile, Taylor has disclosed that the company in collaboration with the Liberia Electricity Corporation has begun carrying out a sensitization program to manage expectation across Grand Bassa, Margibi, Montserrado, Nimba, Bong, Bomi and Cape Mount in Liberia.
