Abu Dhabi Fund for Development loans Togo $15M for Blitta solar plant project

(Togo First) - The Abu Dhabi Fund for Development will loan Togo $15 million to build the Blitta solar PV plant. The related agreement was signed by the Togolese minister of economy and finance, Sani Yaya, and an IRENA representative, at the 10th general assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), in Abu Dhabi. 

The funds add to the $11 million recently approved by the West African Development Bank for the project. 

The plant, let’s recall, should help provide power to 30,000 homes as well as power a cotton ginning factory, starting next year. The facility will be run by AMEA Group over 25 years. Its construction falls in line with the government’s goal to build a solar plant in each of the country’s regions.
