A group of local scientist and inventors has come up with a design of a hydro-electric power plant that can generate up to 3MWatts of electricity which will be very useful for the riverine communities of Bayesla State of Nigeria.
The idea is to construct an over-head reservoir and water is pumped from the abundant rivers and creeks of the Niger Delta region and then run through turbines again. After the initial pumping by either a diesel and gasoline powered pump, the electricity generated can pump water to run itself.
Currently, the Bayelsa State government has agreed to partner with them.
