PROJECT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A 30 MW SOLAR PLANT IN GOROU BANDA
Project manager: Ministry of Energy
Estimated cost (USD): USD 70 million
Estimated cost (FCFA): FCFA 35 billion
The project for the construction of the photovoltaic solar plant with a 30 MW production capacity aims to meet increasing power demands from the cities of Niger. The completion of the current project will permit the increase of national production in the Niamey region, reduce electric power production costs and encourage the socio-economic development of the Niger river area (Niamey, Dosso and Tillabéry).
- Satisfy exponentially growing national demands currently not met by the interconnection with Nigeria; - Economic profitability justified by the existence of high-voltage power lines for efficient sales of the project to all end-users; - Abundance of raw material enabling the plant to run at full-capacity all year round; - Existence of a national solar energy centre for expertise requirements.
