Hydro DRC Congo HUG Helical Power
HUG Helical Power

Africa has to go beyond the single-project solution to solve the crippling energy crisis: a solution that is modular and more quickly accessible.

We use different and less expensive hydro technology, the HUG Helical Turbine. This new system is capable of hydro production in a short time unlike the large dam structures: a $2-3 million investment will add 47 HUGs of 33 MW to the power grid, which can be sold for gross revenues of $8.4 million/year. That’s an unbelievable payback period within a few years.  We don’t have to wait 10 years for all this to happen!

The HUG is modular and mobile, so it can be installed in remote areas of Congo DR or any part of Africa or under developed countries. Expensive transmission lines are not required. Expensive Inverter or Converter Systems are also not required, because of the custom built HUG generators.

Developing energy infrastructure on the continent is one of the key growth strategies identified for Africa since consistent power supply is an instrumental tool to attract much needed foreign direct investments. Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a country endowed with vast potential in hydro power, is about to become a central source of electricity for the entire continent from the potential of the Congo River.

In theory, the generation capacity of Grand Inga represents under half of the Potential Power of the Congo River, which could potentially generate 100,000 MW. 

The rewards can be great, with returns from foreign investment on the continent averaging 30 per cent, according to the UN Conference on Trade & Development.

OUR STRATEGY

Stage 1   Agricultural Mechanization of Africa                                                   Stage 2   Today’s Tall Trees Nursery: Carbon Tax Fund Resource
Stage 3   Micro Finance and Landlord Cooperative for Irrigation 
Stage 4   Irrigation in Remote Areas using moving water energy.
Stage 5   Electricity in Remote Areas created from moving water.

To  investigate the hydroelectric potential of the Congo River, which is the world’s second largest river after the Amazon.

You cannot industrialize without sufficient electricity. You cannot do any of the basic things required for a modern economy without reliable energy. There’s just no way that we can compete in any sort of manner with the world.

BAD NEWS

Do investors have the appetite for a project of this scale in a region notorious for its project finance problems?

The biggest issue for the prospective hydro power investor is that projects require a large outlay and a long wait for any return. The cost, estimated at around $2 billion to build a 1,000 MW hydro electric plant, tends to prove prohibitive for local investors, but the wait, which may be over 15 years, could also be a barrier to participation from international financiers.

There are other African countries with significant hydroelectric potential and more developed democracies. Nigeria and Cameroon both have over 20,000MW of untapped power potential, while Angola has over 18,000MW.

Arguably, risk perceptions for African investments tend to be more severe than the reality.

At present the river potential is less than 2,000MW, at 40% capacity (800 MW) from two decaying hydro dams built in the seventies and eighties with most of the electricity reserved for the mines in the south over 1700 km away.

Africa’s poverty and economic stagnation is regarded as one of the greatest tragedies of our time. Three decades of stagnant growth are viewed as one of the underlying causes of the continent’s distress.

With nearly one billion people, Africa accounts for over a sixth of the world’s population, but generates only 4% of global electricity.

Despite the huge power supplies that Inga could generate, most Africans still live too far from national grids to take advantage of a big, centralized project in a faraway country. Building necessary distribution systems to make use of the dam’s electricity would be cost-prohibitive to say the least. If built, the dam will power big mines and industries, not small businesses, homes and hospitals.

CORRUPTION

Grand Inga doesn’t have much of a chance of “lighting up Africa,” much less lighting up Congo.

The biggest obstacle to the project succeeding in a way that benefits ordinary Africans is corruption. Decades of plundering state coffers and natural resources in DR Congo have institutionalized corruption. Public officials systematically misuse their offices for private gain. In the mining sector alone, at least $200 million of annual taxes go uncollected due to illicit negotiations and corrupt oversight.

In 2008, DR Congo’s state power utility had two of SNEL’s top directors interrogated after the disappearance of $6.5 million earmarked for Inga 2 rehabilitation. SNEL’s revenues reportedly plunged by 30% thereafter.

High-level corruption is still endemic. A UN panel stated that 60–80 per cent of customs revenue was embezzled. The Congo DR ranked 156 in Transparency International’s 2006 list of the most corrupt countries. Reversing corruption and ensuring public accountability demands the strengthening of the judicial system.

CONFLICT

The natural riches have attracted rapacious adventurers, unscrupulous corporations, vicious warlords and corrupt governments, and divided the population between competing ethnic groups.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is slowly recovering from a conflict known as Africa’s first world war, which led to the loss of some five million lives between 1994 and 2003, but many eastern areas are still plagued by violence as various rebel groups continue to operate there.

This vast country has hardly any roads or railways, while the health and education systems lie in ruins.

Grand Illusions for African Energy

A  smaller Inga III scheme is  widely seen as a test run for Grand Inga. Inga III is on the planning board and it would generate 4,800 megawatts (MW). Inga III will require $12 billion in total, with dam construction costs estimated at 8.5 billion dollars of this amount. The project will take six years to complete.

“This project may be too risky because of costs and time” ,  a senior African Development Bank (AfDB) official said.

There are a lot of factors that are not the ideal starting point for multi-billion dollar project with a long investment horizon:

  • Rampant corruption
  • Lack of credible institutions
  • Lack of effective control/power of all parts of the country
  • Unstable political situation in the DRC 
  • Risks in payments for the electricity, operation and maintenance of the hydro plants, sabotage, confiscation, nationalization and inability to repay debt
  • Risks of imposition of very high tariffs and incompetent maintenance

In light of the above discussion and the facts presented one is persuaded to agree that the Grand Inga is ‘too big to build’, and in the same breath one is also persuaded to add that ‘it is too risky to build’.

The Study Area of the Lower Congo River

The lower Congo is characterized by the narrowing of the river. Just downstream are the first of 30 waterfalls as the river continues to flow towards Matadi extending for some 60 km. Here, the Congo’s estuary begins in a narrow channel only 0.65 km to 1.6km. The river here is much deeper and its current is fast – ideal for helical turbine construction:

By comparison, water flows through the 300m wide bottleneck at a speed of up to 6.5m/sec (almost 13 knots) off South Korea. They are planning a permanent helical turbine array intended to generate 100 MW.

  • At a width of 650m, a velocity is 5.14 m/s (10 knots)
  • At a width of 800m, the velocity is 4.16 m/s (8 knots)

GLOBAL THINKING

Democratic Republic of Congo needs the rule of law. People need protection when rights are violated, to start businesses and to find out where the money goes.

A new business needs impeccable local political contacts, or they shouldn’t even try.

“But until the DRC is stabilized, and there’s a real international effort spearheaded by African partners, it isn’t going to get off the ground.”

Albert Einstein said, “The problems in the world today are so enormous that they cannot be solved with the level of thinking that created them.“ What is really required is global thinking for most mega projects.”

A SPARK OF BETTER NEWS

By supporting hydro schemes in Africa, foreign governments and companies can claim to be both promoting development in the world’s poorer countries and trying to address climate change. Such factors may be just enough to tip the balance in favor of constructing many of the planned hydro projects across the African continent.

Big business, which for years shunned Africa, has suddenly developed a new interest, starting with the Chinese, attracted by the Rich  Pickings to be had.  Added to this potential income are credits, which  one can receive from investing in so-called clean development projects.

It is time for the World Bank and the DRC government to embrace more feasible solutions and stop holding the Congolese population hostage to their multi-billion dollar dreams.

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  

HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?

1. DELIVERANCE?

Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. 

2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?

After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.

3.  HEALING?

Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!

Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing.   Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.

THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?

god proof

  • Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel  lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.” 
  • Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.

Christianity on a Table Napkin:

Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”                                                                                                                                     Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was, so that He could suffer in the flesh, and take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Savior – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.     Matthew 1:21  It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heart-broken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His hands.
To receive Jesus as your Savior… SAY:

Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive You as my Lord and Savior. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen
Your life will begin to change in an amazing way. Without expecting  anything, be sensitive to any dreams or visions. 

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                                     Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”.                                       Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in  the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising.  He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
