Grand Inga

Democratic Republic of the Congo

Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)

Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) has selected the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) as a key partner to become world leaders in green industrial products.

FFI proposes to develop the potential of the lower Congo River to power green industries. The proposed Grand Inga Project includes development of approximately 44 gigawatts of hydroelectric power. This would be the world’s largest single source of renewable energy and the beginning of green industry development in the DRC.

The project will provide significant national economic opportunity. In partnership with the DRC, FFI will establish training facilities to maximise local community participation in the workforce as part of its support for the development.

Grand Inga project

Fortescue Future Industries’ (FFI) proposal in the Democratic Republic of Congo is to create a major downstream green hydrogen and green ammonia industry, which will contribute to the elimination of global warming.

FFI is planning to develop the long anticipated Grand Inga Hydroelectric Project, including the Matadi and the Pioka projects, and importantly the project will include downstream green industry processing and inter- connected port precinct.

The project will provide significant national economic opportunity. In partnership with the DRC, FFI will establish training facilities to maximise local community participation in the workforce as part of its support for the development.
