Mali’s first fully fledged independent power project has begun operating at Kayes, in Hawa-Dembaya district in the west of the country. The 90MW Albatros Energy Mali heavy fuel oil (HFO) plant will play an important role in grid stability and the integration of renewables into the system.Although representing only around 20% of current installed capacity, the plant will add around 25% to baseload generation due to the age and unreliability of the rest of Mali’s generation fleet.
