Togo: A 30MW PV solar plant to soon be established in Blitta

(Togo First) - A 30 MW solar power plant will be established in Blitta, about 267km from Lomé. The project was announced last Wednesday during a ministers’ council.

The infrastructure will help reduce our country’s power dependency and therefore help in achieving our national development plan (PND),” the statement from the council indicates.

“The ‘declaration d’utilité publique’ for the project is a prerequisite,” said the authorities, while highlighting “the importance of both the project and the need to proceed to the fair and compensated expropriation of residents on the concerned site.”

Once built, this plant would be the second with a capacity of 30MW to be constructed in Togo. The first will be built in Dapaong and is financed by the Abu Dhabi Fund and AMEA POWER.

Let’s recall that under its 2030 universal power coverage plan, Togo plans to build four PV solar power plants with a respective capacity of 30MW.
