The Minister of Energy, Cheick Taliby Sylla announced that the electricity supply of the locality of Kankan, in Guinea, will soon be improved with the addition of 20 MW of additional capacity.
Additional contribution is said to 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.
The Minister of Energy stated that “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,”
The city of Kankan currently has an electrical production capacity of 16 MW.
