Government to spend XOF46 billion in a project aimed at boosting access to electricity in Togo

(Togo First) - Lomé prepares to invest XOF46 billion in the PERECUT project (Programme d’Extension de Réseau Electrique dans les Centres Urbains du Togo). The latter aims at expanding the power network across the country’s urban centers. 

The funds will be mobilized with the help of technical and financial partners including Agence française de développement (AFD), Germany’s Kwf, and the European Union (EU). In effect, more than 500,000 people will have access to electricity as a result of the project. 

The PERECUT, according to the ministry of energy and mining, is divided into three axes. First is the rehabilitation, reinforcement, and extension of the distribution network serving 53 municipalities situated across all five economic regions of Togo. The second axis concerns additional support for grid access while the last relates to support and consolidating capacities. 

Among others, sources mention a 48-km Medium Tension line and more than 145 substations which are to be rehabilitated and/or reinforced; more than 226 new substations to set up and more than 1,164 low tension networks, as well as the extension of the network to supply 142 medium tension stations.
