Monday January 14, 2019  Printer Friendly Email this article

Burkina Faso plans to set up a temporary thermal power station, running on fuel to meet its energy deficit. The emergency measure being developed will enable the country to have 50 MW of additional electricity over the 2019-2021 period.

At the end of this period, power plants under construction will take over, said the Ministry of Energy through the National Electricity Company (SONABEL).

The plant's production, which has already been approved by the government, will be injected into the national grid thanks to the transportation infrastructure serving the Ouaga 2 power plant.

Authorities hope to ensure a stable electricity supply despite the increase in demand, mainly in periods of heat longer and longer. The first megawatts of this plant should be available by February 2019.

Currently, more than a dozen power plants with a combined capacity of 352.5 MW are in development in the country.
