PND plans multiple power projects, including hydropower dams, solar and coal-fired thermal plants

(Togo First) - In line with its new national development strategy (PND 2018-2022), Togo plans to build four hydropower dams, a coal-fired thermal plant, two solar plants and six transmission lines. The document combines both traditional and clean energy sources to provide power to 50% of the Togolese population by 2020.

The document plans various energy infrastructures which according to authorities will enable access to reliable, modern and low-cost power services.

The “ambitious program will help tap into hydropower potential through the construction of four dams, namely Tétéou (50MW), Danyi-Konda (10MW, Baghan (6MW), Landa-Pozanda (4MW). It will also leverage thermal potential with a project involving construction of  a coal-fired thermal power plant. Finally, two transmission lines of 330KV and four lines of 161KV will be built in addition to a 10MW solar plant in Mango and another of 5MW in Kara”, authorities indicated.

If effectively carried out, these projects would be clear evidence that Togo is doing everything to become one of the region’s top energy producers.
