China had plans to finance the construction of a third hydro-electric dam, said the Guinean energy minister. Thierno Habib Diallo said that the 500mW hydro-electric dam with an estimated price tag of $609mn would be built at Soapil, on a Konkour River tributary, in the Lower Guinea Kindia Prefecture. Diallo said a Chinese team would shortly arrive in Conakry to look into the feasibility studies of the project.
