Control of E&S impacts

A PROJECT THAT CONTROLS ITS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH INTERNATIONAL BEST PRACTICES

NHPC is leading the construction of the Nachtigal hydroelectric facility in compliance with the best international standards in terms of environmental preservation. The EPC contractors selected for the construction works have committed to comply with these standards.

As such:

  • Clearing is controlled to ensure that the areas cleared are limited to the strict minimum
  • The presence of invasive plants is strictly monitored and supervised
    Contaminated lands are treated separately from the arable lands that will be reused for the revegetation of the site
  • Water quality analyses of the Sanaga are carried out regularly
  • Waste sorting has been put in place since the beginning of the project
  • Hazardous waste is disposed of by approved specialized companies
