In Madagascar, Green Power has started construction of the Andranotakatra solar power plant. The infrastructure with a capacity of 17 MW will be built by the end of 2021 in three phases, the first of which will provide 1.2 MW within two months.
In Madagascar, a 17 MW solar power plant will be installed in the locality of Andranotakatra, commune of Belobaka in the district of Mahajanga. The construction works of the infrastructure developed by Green Power have already started and the earthworks and the installation of fences have been carried out around the land with an area of 42 hectares.
“The aim is to improve energy production and reduce the cost of energy in Mahajanga. Energy production will ultimately be 17 megawatts. Mahajanga and Belobaka will benefit from the advantages of this new infrastructure. The solar power plant will be interconnected with the Jirama network (the Malagasy national electricity company, Editor’s note) and will produce hybrid electricity, ” said Maurille Mananjara, Jirama’s regional director for Boeny.
The plant will be set up in three stages which will allow the installation of 1.2 MW after two months, 10.8 MW by March 2021 and an additional 5 MW by the end of 2021.
