The Ten Mérina plant in Mérina Dakhar, Tivaouane region, 120km north-east of Dakar, was developed by an all-French consortium of investors and contractors, led by investment fund Meridiam, in partnership with construction group Eiffage, and Engie’s Solairedirect unit. Eiffage and Solairedirect built the plant and grid connection, and will be responsible for operations and maintenance.
