Burkina Faso: Sonabel to expand Kossodo with MAN gensets
Société Nationale d’Electricité du Burkina (Sonabel) has contracted MAN Energy Solutions to supply three diesel gensets for the expansion of the Kossodo thermal power plant in Ouagadougou. The Germany-based engineering group announced on 18 June that it would supply three MAN 18V51/60TS engines to raise the capacity of the baseload plant in Kossodo, a suburb of the capital, by 55MW to 110MW, and in the process increase national generation capacity by almost 20%. Local company Tecmon BF is acting as the main contractor.
