Work in progress at the Bui Dam site by Sinohydro, a state-owned Chinese hydropower and engineering company. Here they grate the southern mountain that will serve as part of the dam's infrastructure. To the left, the cleared site of the former Ewe fishing village of Agbegikrom is visible. Looking downstream, the braiding of the Black Volta River below the dam site is visible.

Sinohydro, a state-owned Chinese hydropower engineering and construction company, began construction on the Bui Hydroelectric Dam in 2008. Here on the north bank of the Black Volta River at the base of the mountain which became the dam site is an Ewe fishing village, Agbegikrom. The village was leveled after its inhabitants were resettled. Two views, one showing a road under construction along the south bank of the Black Volta River at the dam site.
