In Togo, the national electricity company, CEET, is acquiring the means to fight against electricity fraud in the capital. It is investing $ 2.9 million in the purchase of anti-fraud equipment that will be deployed during the extension of the Lomé distribution network.
The Togo Electric Power Company (CEET) will invest 1.6 billion CFA francs ($ 2.9 million) in the fight against fraud. The funds will in fact be used for the acquisition of connection equipment, including anti-fraud equipment.
The French company Michaud Export will take care of the purchase of said equipment. It was selected after an international competitive bidding process and has 40 years of experience and a presence in 70 countries. Michaud will, among other things, deliver 10 amp anti-fraud kits and cable breakout kits to CEET.
This equipment will be deployed during the connections made as part of the Lomé Electricity Network Extension Project (PEREL). This will allow the extension of the Togolese capital’s distribution network through the installation of low and medium voltage lines.
It is funded with support from the French Development Agency, the European Union and the German Development Bank (KfW).
