Project justification

The Mirama Kikagati project involves the construction of a transmission line between the cities of Mirama, Kikagati and Nsongezi, located in the south of Uganda. In total, the project comprised 37 km of transmission line (132 Kv), besides the construction of associated substations. After completion, the project will benefit to the evacuation of energy generated in the Kikagati and Nsongenzi power stations, will contribute to the economy of the southern region of Uganda thanks to the construction of an adequate, safe and reliable electricity infrastructure, as well as will reduct poverty due to the supply of medium and low voltage electricity networks.

Scope of Works

QGMI scope of work includes the following:

  • Construction of 37.3km transmission line between Mirama-Kikagati-Nsongezi.
  • Construction of the 132/33kV Nsongezi substation, including civil works and supply of equipment.
  • Expansion of the existing Mirama 132kV Substation, including civil works and supply of equipment.
  • Updating of the telecommunications system of 4 peripheral substations.

The Project will be developed in line with international standards (IFC Performance Standards, World Bank EHS Guidelines, OECD Common Approaches) and national regulations.

Integrated Waste Management

At QGMI, we plan to adopt an integrated waste management approach, by assessing the various waste streams and adopting an approach of waste management. Our organic wastes are segregated, and a designed composter treats them. The result of the organic waste management can be applied to our reforestation projects.

Accugrade GPS Control System

We use a GPS technology to increase our productivity in earthmoving and grading processes. This Control System allows operators to grade more precisely and faster, which translates into higher productivity, lower operating costs, and a well-done work.

SAE (Electronic Monitoring System)

The Electronic Monitorig System was developed internally by the IT team, with the aim of monitoring the development of activities and working hours of workers and teams in real time, reducing access time to performance indicators for strategic decision making. The system, which is available in Portuguese, English, and Spanish, works via smartphone by reading QR Codes affixed to equipment and on workers’ credentials. It works even where there is no internet available, as data can be stored in the phone’s memory and transferred when there is a Wi-Fi or 4G network signal. It improves cost management, productivity control and contributes to environmental sustainability.
