Mali: Solar power project for Ségou

Issue 305 - 24 Jul 2015 | 3 minute read

The Ministry of Energy and Water, Electricité du Mali and project company Ségou Solaire SA signed a 25-year power purchase agreement and other contracts on 9 July for a 33MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Ségou. Ségou Solaire is 50% owned by Norway’s Scatec Solar, 32.5% by the World Bank’s IFC InfraVentures and 17.5% by local project development company Africa Power 1. The project is an important milestone for Mali, where a breakthrough ceasefire agreement between the government and the Coalition of Azawad Movements was signed in June after fighting resumed early this year.
