Developing custom solutions from local resources is core to ContourGlobal's approach. Project KivuWatt is a prime example of this innovative thinking in action.

Engines Plant in Rwanda

For decades, Rwanda’s Lake Kivu, with its high concentration of methane and carbon dioxide, was seen as a risk due to its potential for toxic release. Today, our team is focused on extracting methane from the lake to generate electricity that will expand household access to power, lower costs, and reduce environmental hazards. The first phase of this project is powering three gensets to produce 26 MW of electricity for the local grid. The next phase of this project will deploy nine additional gensets at 75 MW to create a total capacity of over 100 MW for this high-growth country.
