Issue 390 - 19 Apr 2019 | 1 minute read
A cabinet meeting on 21 March adopted a draft decree approving development of the first 29.6MW phase of a 50MW solar plant in Sikasso on a build-own-operate-transfer basis. A tender process for a 50MW solar PV project at Sikasso was initiated in 2015. Mali-based company Power Pro, established by Omnium Invest and Atlantic Renewable Energy Partners, was selected as preferred bidder to develop the project in January 2016. In August 2017, Italy’s Building Energy acquired a majority stake in Power Pro and is now managing the project.
