10 MW for Central African Republic26 May 2020
Clarke Energy is supplying four containerised Kohler-SDMO KD3500-F diesel gensets to Tunisia based Tragedel to provide much needed additional generating capacity to the Central African Republic, its first reference in that country.
The project will add 10 MW to the power supply for the capital city Bangui, which suffers several hours of interrupted power daily. The new units will also offer the necessary flexibility to support heavy overhaul maintenance on an existing obsolete hydro plant.
The power plant will run as baseload or peaking, with the power supplied to the public utility grid, which is owned and managed by ENERCA.
Tragedel has acted as the EPC contractor for the project which has been funded by the Saudi Fund for Development.
