With the completion deadline of the massive Lom Pangar dam construction project looming on the horizon, a leading Italian construction firm has been hard at work in the jungles of Cameroon modifying sections of the Chad-Cameroon pipeline. The necessary modifications had to be made well before the pipeline is submerged in the reservoir when the dam becomes operational later this year.

Described by Michael Ngako Tomdio, Minister of Energy and Water for Cameroon, as the “keystone in the arch of the Cameroonian electric system," the Lom Pangar Dam will generate electricity for industry and millions of residents throughout Cameroon. In preparation for constructing the dam, extensive environmental assessments and studies were carried out, revealing that two sections of the pipeline would be flooded in the reservoir when the dam is completed, so they would have to be modified.
