MCC CEO Pleased With Work At Mt. Coffee Hydro Plant 

MONROVIA, October 26 (LINA) – The Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. government's Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), Dana J. Hyde, has said she is pleased with ongoing works at the Mount Coffee Hydro Plant in Harrisburg, outside Monrovia.

“I am pleased to see the work being carried out at the Mt. Coffee hydropower plant, which will triple the amount of electricity the utility is able to produce. Mount Coffee will produce clean, affordable, and reliable power for people, communities and businesses.”

“The United States is proud of its partnership with the people of Liberia to tackle the issues constraining growth in the aftermath of Ebola,” said CEO Hyde.

She was in Liberia over the last two days, as part of the MCC Powering Africa trip, according to a U.S. Embassy release issued here Wednesday. 

It said CEO Hyde is visiting partner countries where MCC is making investments in energy to empower people and energize communities.

During the visit, CEO Hyde toured the Mount Coffee Hydropower plant, and visited the Monrovia Breweries and Freeport of Monrovia.

Along with U.S. Ambassador to Liberia Christine Elder, CEO Hyde met with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

MCC’s $257 million Liberia Compact, launched early this year, focuses on addressing the lack of access to reliable and affordable electricity and inadequate road infrastructure.

MCC is investing in the rehabilitation of the Mount Coffee Hydropower Plant, along with the Government of Liberia, the European Investment Bank, KfW Development Bank, and the Government of Norway.

The Mount Coffee plant is on track to deliver power from the first turbine by the end of the year.

MCC is also supporting the Ministry of Public Works by investing in a nationwide road maintenance framework.

The release said a strong road system will help reduce the cost of doing business, boost local trade, and create stronger economic ties throughout the region. 

On the MCC Powering Africa trip, CEO Hyde has visited Benin, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. The next country CEO Hyde will visit isGhana.
