Togo: Amea Togo Solar secures deal to build a 50MW solar plant in Blitta

(Togo First) - Amea Togo Solar will build a 50MW solar plant in Blitta (271km north of Lomé).

The related concession agreement was signed on November 26, 2019, by the firm and the government. Their respective representatives were Alnowais Hussain Jasim and Dèdèriwè Ably Bidamon, minister of energy.

Under the deal, the State grants Amea Togo Solar all rights to design, finance, build, launch, operate and maintain the facility. In return, the firm will transfer, after concession, power produced at the plant to the State, via the public utility network.

Let's recall Togo's ambition to provide power to two million people through solar, by raising the rate of electrification in rural areas. Indeed, it intends to increase it to 50% in 2022 (from 8% now, and 100% by 2030.
