Ivory Coast To Complete 70MW Solar Plant by December 2024

Ivory Coast’s Council of Ministers has approved the concession agreement for the construction of a photovoltaic solar power plant in Bondoukou, in the country’s northeast. The plant is due to start commercial operations in 15 months’ time.

The electricity infrastructure is a public-private partnership (PPP) under which the concessionaire will develop, finance, build and operate the Bondoukou photovoltaic solar power plant.

Independent power producer Amea Power signed the concession contract for the construction of the power plant, in January 2023. It also signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) under which the output from the Bondoukou solar power plant will be sold to the compagnie ivoirienne d’électricité Ivorian Electricity Company (CIE) for 25 years.

The Bondoukou solar power plant, in the Gontougo region, will be installed on an 85-hectare site 420 km north-east of the economic capital Abidjan. The plant will be capable of injecting 87,100 MWh of electricity a year into Ivory Coast’s national grid. The Bondoukou photovoltaic solar power plant will require an investment of 56Million Euros (37Billion CFA francs).
