Engie JV to execute 2.2-MW solar project in Gabon


August 6 (Solar) – A joint venture between French utility Engie SA (EPA:ENGI) and the Centum Adetel Group has been selected to deploy eight hybrid solar power facilities in Gabon with a combined capacity of 2.2 MW.

Engie said in a statement today that it has signed a contract for this project with Gabonese financial institution Caisse des Depots et Consignations (CDC). Engie’s 50.76%-owned Ausar Energy has developed the scheme in collaboration with CDC, the country’s energy ministry and local energy and water company Societe d’Energie et d’Eau du Gabon (SEEG).

The project involves eight locations that are currently supplied by oil-fired thermal power plants. It is expected to save Gabon 1 million litres of fuel oil per year.

Ausar Energy is seen to begin construction work in a few weeks, according to the announcement.
