Senegal imports turbines ahead of first big wind farm project

Senegal has started importation of turbines for her wind farm. The country is staying the course of becoming a notable renewable powerhouse in Africa, by ensuring that a sixth of the country’s power is from renewable sources.

This is in line with President Macky Sall’s plan of a 30 per cent target for clean energy by 2020 and being done in partnership with privately owned British firm, Lekela.

The particular wind farm is located in Taiba Ndiaye -located 100 kilometers from Dakar with a generating capacity of 158.7 megawatts by next year.

The 200 million CFA franc or $352 million project is partially financed by Lekela with the other half being funded by U.S -based Overseas Private Investment Corporation and Danish export credit company, EKF.
