InfraCo signs 40MWac PPA with Electricite de Guinee
26 May 2021

InfraCo Africa, part of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) and Solvéo Energie,  have signed a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Electricité  de Guinée (EDG); marking a significant milestone for the pioneering Khoumagueli Solar IPP project. The PPA follows on from the signing of a Concession Agreement for the project in February 2019.

The 40MWac Khoumagueli Solar project will be Guinea’s first grid-connected solar photovoltaic plant and is designed to complement power generation at the nearby 75 MW Garafiri hydroelectric plant. The facilities will combine to maximise delivery of renewable energy to the national grid, with Khoumagueli Solar expected to mitigate against the impact of fluctuating rainfall on hydro power generation at the Garafiri plant.
