In Burkina Faso, power generation will be boosted by an additional 50 MW provided by a temporary plant installed by Aggreko. The plant will enter service on May 15 in the community of Goughin.
The establishment of the temporary power plant came at cost of about $ 90 million.
"This power station is a solution that reinforces the political options taken with the President of Burkina Faso. It supports the ongoing interconnections with Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana and helps to better deal with the deficit. This plant will have the advantage of responding quickly to demand, "said Christophe Dabire, the Prime Minister of Burkina Faso.
In addition to this additional solution, the country has started construction of a 50 MW power plant in Kossodo and a 150 MW power plant in Ouaga East.
