Burkina Faso: Aggreko plant starts up
A 50MW grid-connected rental plant installed by Aggreko in the Gounghin district of Ouagadougou started up in mid-May. The cabinet approved the CFA50bn ($85m) project in December to address short-term energy shortages in the country. Visiting the project site on 3 May with Prime Minister Christophe Joseph Marie Dabiré, energy minister Ismael Bechir Ouedraogo said the government also planned a 50MW expansion of the Kossodo thermal plant and 150MW of new capacity at Ouagadougou East.
