Mali/Senegal: APR contract

Subscriber

APR Energy on 1 July announced it had signed a contract to supply 40MW to Mali from a power plant it will establish in Senegal.

In this case, the APR power plant will feed into the Senegal River Basin Development Authority (OMVS) grid connecting Mali, Mauritania and Senegal.
