Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Four diesel-fueled thermal plants in Cameroon have started tests to produce 100 megawatts of electricity amid plans to boost supplies, said Akamba Zengue, an official with the Electricity Development Corp.

The plants at Bamenda, Yaounde, Mbalmayo and Ebolowa are part of Cameroon’s emergency plan to increase output as construction continues at two hydroelectricity projects, he told reporters in Yaounde, the capital, yesterday.
