Senegal, the Gambia reached deal on power supply cooperation

BANJUL (Globe Afrique) – An established Senegalese electricity company has consented to supply power utility to the Gambia through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), Gambian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy said on Friday.

According to the ministry’s release, the development came after the Gambian minister of petroleum visited Dakar, capital of Senegal, earlier this month.

“The outcome of the visit was the finalization of a memorandum of understanding between the two national utilities and the initializing of a highly concessional draft Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) between the two Utilities,” it said.

The supply from the Senegalese electricity company SENELEC will significantly complement Gambian power utility NAWEC`s efforts and most parts of rural Gambia will soon start enjoying 24 hours of electricity supply, a significant milestone in the rural electrification program, it said.
