Project manager: Ministry for Energy
Estimated cost (USD): USD 208,90
Estimated cost (FCFA): FCFA 104,459 billion
SONICHAR (Nigerien Anou-Aren coal company) aims to audit present perspectives (production increase) for the SONICHAR mining customers, in addition to meeting the increasing needs of NIGELEC, the national electricity company, and the development of new mines in the region (GOVIEX, GLOBALE ATOMIC) who have suffered from a total installed capacity deficit since 2013. To remedy this power pulse coverage deficit and sustain the electric power supply in the northern region of the country, SONICHAR requires a second plant equipped with 2 unit (25 MW/unit). SONICHAR needs an additional 42 MW (excluding new customers), while for the time being, it can only provide 32 MW coverage.
