The energy infrastructure estimated to cost between XAF350 billion and XAF670 billion depending on the development option chosen by the builder will be built over the Dja River.

The Dja River is a water border between Cameroon and Congo. The energy produced by the dam will be supplied to the two countries that own the project. However, neighboring countries like the Central African Republic and Gabon will also benefit from the project.
