The Mbeya (also Mbé, Mbei) is a river of Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. It is a tributary of the Komo River. The watershed covers 6,940 square kilometres (2,680 sq mi), 93% of which is in Gabon (including parts of Crystal Mountains National Park) and the remainder in Equatorial Guinea.[1] The Gabonese power and water utility SEEG, a subsidiary of Veolia, operates two hydroelectric dams on the river at Kinguélé (58 MW) and Tchimbélé (69 MW).[2]
