Angola: Eni signs solar plant concession

Issue 404 - 21 Nov 2019 | 1 minute read
Eni and the government of Angola signed a concession agreement in Rome on 13 November for a 50MWp PV plant in Namibe province, where Eni supports rural development projects. The plant will be built by Solenova, a renewable energy joint venture between Eni and Sonangol, and will be connected to the transmission grid in the south of the country. The implementation of the 25MWp first phase will allow a reduction in diesel consumption estimated at around 13,500m3/yr, reducing electricity production costs and cutting greenhouse gas emissions by around 20,000 t/yr of CO2 equivalent, Eni said.
