Thursday February 7, 2019  Printer Friendly Email this article

GoviEx Uranium has signed a MoU with Canadian energy developer Windiga Energy to jointly evaluate the feasibility of powering the company’s flagship Madaouela project using hybrid solar power solutions in Niger.

Initial discussions and collaboration between the two companies will target energy solutions with the intent to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 20,000 tons per annum and provide sustainable, renewable power at approximately 25% lower cost than traditional coal-fired options.

GoviEx has requested that Windiga determine the feasibility of a solution to power the Madaouela Project and the surrounding local community through a hybrid power plant combining solar PV panels and diesel generators with total installed capacity of at least 20 MW.

Under the terms of the MoU, following a favorable result from a feasibility study, GoviEx will have an opportunity to negotiate a power purchase agreement for the priority supply of electricity for an initial term of 21 years, extendible at the request of GoviEx.
