Hybrid Solutions Deliver Energy and Cost Savings for Mauritania

The Mauritanian utility (SOMELEC) issued a call for tender to which VERGNET was appointed to deliver the hybrid power plant project in Mauritania. It will be the first of its kind in this West African sub- region. The project integrates the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of a 1.3 MWp solar PV plant along with a 5 MW thermal (LFO/HFO) plant. The power plant will be located on a new site close to the town of Kiffa (third most important town in the country) and will supply both towns of Kiffa, Guérou and some other villages in between these two towns. The new plant will replace the existing power plants in the two towns (diesel generators) and will be the only generating station on Kiffa’s isolated electrical grid.

To achieve this innovative project, Vergnet entered a partnership with ABC DIESEL. The implementation of the project required the expertise and commitment of both companies to deliver highly advanced renewable energy solutions.
