Guinea To Produce Solar Panels
20 000 jobs and an investment of over U.S. $ 3 billion, is the benefit to come
from the solar energy project as announced the DACC Associates LLC MAMSKA
Guinea-LTD and the utility of Guinea (EDG) announced on Tuesday, January 24 in
solar power project of 1000 MW is 100% funded by the U.S. partner DACC. In its
activities, it will be assisted by international financial companies involved
in the sector of renewable energy, said the president of Guinea Mamaska. This project, adds Mamady
Kaba Sinkoun, will produce energy to sell to the EDG. After reaching the
objectives of the project on an area of about 6 to 7 years, plants and
materials will return to the Guinean government.
the partner has set up a factory manufacturing solar panels with international
standards to meet the demands at the country and export to the nearby regions.
An ambition of size that is! In the future, we can see with how Guinea will
become, if this project to be realized, the first African country to have a
manufacturing facility on its soil.
first instance, or the pilot phase, the project wants to put in the Boke region
a production of 50 MWC that will be distributed as follows: Boke 5 MWp with an
annual production of 43,200 MWh, the village of Kamsar 5 MWp for annual
production of 43,200 MWh and the mines 40 MWp for an annual production of
Mamska-DACC plans to install solar photovoltaic for all the mines in Guinea.
Then, build solar power plants in the prefectures and Rural Communities
Development (CRD). It should also notice that the power to be installed in each
prefecture will vary between 3 MWp to 5 MWp, depending on the size of the
region concerned and the needs of application.
The work on
this project will soon begin to allow Guinea to have electricity 24/24 when we
know that the electric current service, even in Conakry, remains to be desired.
