The Lake Kivu with its surface of 2,400 km² and a depth of 480 m hosts large methane deposits that can be used for eco-friendly energy generation purposes. To realize this plan, 2019 saw the construction launch of one of Rwanda’s largest power plants, which is to supply the landlocked country with energy. The power plant runs with 19 high-performance gas engines of the type MWM TCG 2032B V16.
