بدء تشغيل سد النهضة الإثيوبي الكبير

February 22, 2022 - بدأت إثيوبيا في توليد الكهرباء من سد النهضة الإثيوبي الكبير، الذي من المقرر أن يكون أكبر محطة لتوليد الطاقة الكهرومائية في أفريقيا.

After turning on the turbines in the first phase of the project on Sunday, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed sought to assure neighbours Sudan and Egypt that his country did not wish to harm their interests.

Abiy’s government says the dam on the Blue Nile is key to Ethiopia’s economic development, but Egypt and Sudan depend on the waters of the Nile and have worried it will cause water shortages downstream, according to Reuters.
