EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Introduction

The Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) has secured credit form the World Bank to implement the Energy Sector Utility Reform Project (ESURP). The International Development Association (IDA) provided an initial funding of USD forty (40) million and additional financing of USD 50 million towards the implementation of the project. This brings the total financing by IDA to USD ninety (90) million for ESURP Parent and AF.  The main objective of ESURP is to upgrade the distribution lines, reduce losses in electricity supply to Freetown, and improve commercial performance of EDSA.  

This project involve the upgrading and rehabilitation of  key primary Medium Voltage (MV) network infrastructure, including aged MV substations and feeder lines in the Greater Freetown area.  Due to decades of neglect, primary MV substations are in a state of disrepair, substation batteries and circuit breakers are mostly not functional, and DC supplies nonoperational.  Sections of the system are overloaded, protection relays are faulty and there is a serious risk of infrastructure damage occurring because of protection system or circuit breaker failure. The envisaged upgrade will require that certain existing links to be replaced with appropriately sized cables/overhead lines, and will help reduced technical losses and enhance reliability.

Appropriately matching needed investments in MV feeder upgrade to appropriate investments in corresponding substations will enable systematic system upgrade and protection of infrastructure. The upgrade will also be complementary to network investments effected under the SLIDF energy access project and forms part of a systematic approach to rehabilitate the Freetown network on an incremental basis.  In particular, it should be noted there has been an increase in demand in certain areas from newly established commercial operations and consideration is given to expanding the network to meet this demand.
