Burkina Faso: Wärtsilä wins EPC contract for solar PV plant
Eren Renewable Energy and its partner African Energy Management Platform (AEMP) have given Finland’s Wärtsilä an engineering, procurement and construction contract for the supply of a 15MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) plant in north-eastern Burkina Faso. The solar plant will be built next to an existing 55MW heavy fuel oil-fired power plant also supplied by Wärtsilä and will be controlled and operated in synchronisation, thus forming the largest engine-solar PV hybrid power plant in Africa, Wärtsilä announced on 22 March.
