Morocco offers 20 MW turbine to Guinea as part of moves to improve bi-lateral relations
London, Jan. 24, 2020 (AltAfrica)-In Guinea, the electricity supply of the locality of Kankan will soon be improved with the addition of 20 MW of additional capacity, announced Cheick Taliby Sylla, the Minister of Energy.
The additional contribution will come from a gas turbine of equivalent capacity sent to the country by Morocco. The shipment is part of the strengthening of the bilateral relationship between the two States.
A Moroccan team is already on the ground to speed up the transfer of power generation groups, their installation and their operation. It is also expected that local managers will be trained to take over the operation of the infrastructure.
“We will strengthen this cooperation in technical assistance and in other areas in order to benefit from the Moroccan experience in the area of electrification,” said the Minister of Energy.
Recall that the city of Kankan currently has an electrical production capacity of 16 MW.
