By end of June 2019, some 1,278.82 km of High Voltage (HV) transmission lines had been laid, evacuating power from various points of generation across the country, as well as facilitating regional interconnectivity. These are mainly 110kV and 220kV transmission lines.
The 70kV lines previously running through Birembo-Musha to Kabarondo substation that existed till 2013, were upgraded to 110 kV to improve network reliability and power supply stability amidst the country’s changing power demand profile. In total, 13 high voltage transmission lines (193.5 km) were completed in the last 8 years from 2010 to 2018
Since 2015, Rwanda has directed investments towards more advanced transmission infrastructure with the construction of 93.5 km of 220kV Mirama-Shango transmission line, to support regional power trade from Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda in future as and whenever needed.
Some other transmission lines were already built to beef-up the existing network, including the 119 km of 110 kV transmission line: Rulindo – Ngarama – Gabiro – Musha, recently completed and energized.
Among the planned transmission lines projects in the next few years include:
Currently there are 27 substations that are operational around the country as transmission lines are being laid out countrywide so as substations.
