The $15 million project for the Somosomo Hydro Plant which will connect with hydro plants at Welagi and Wairiki will  be opened next month.

This is a development that the people of Taveuni have always looked forward to and Government was now finally delivering it to their island.

The Divisional Planning Officer (DPO) Alipate Bolalevu said work was progressing well at the Somosomo plant.

“There has been good progress on the project and work should be completed before this year’s end,” he said.

Mr Bolalevu said electricity from the hydro dam would cover about 10km from Somosomo towards the north and south ends.

“Right now, businesses on the island have their own generators and supply of electricity.

“But Government’s hydro project will boost development and business on the island and benefit farmers.”

The project is a joint venture between the Chinese and Fiji governments.
