Äthiopia hat Mega-Damm am blauen Nil gestartet

February 22, 2022 - Äthiopien hat Turbinen zur Erzeugung von Strom am Großen Äthiopischen Renaissance Damm (GERD) aktiviert, der Afrikas größtes Wasserkraftwerks Projekt ist.

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.
