13 February 2023 – At the beginning of the Chinese Spring Festival 2023, ARE Member SINOSOAR once again brings good news– Their Niger Branch Company has just signed a contract of 9.52MW Solar microgrid in Dosso and Tahoua Provinces of Niger. This project is a key and important contract of SINOSOAR in Africa after the on-going project of 5 PV-Diesel-Battery hybrid power plants in Agadez Province of Niger.

The 9.52MW PV-Battery micro grid project is funded by the Islamic Development Bank. The Rural Electrification Authority of Niger is the project owner. The project is an EPC turnkey project, including the Design, Supply and Installation of three (03) power plants in Dosso and Tahoua provinces. The project construction period is expected to be 18 months, including the construction of 9.52MW Solar power plants, 14.5MWh Battery Energy Storage System and the 33kV MV booster station etc.

Niger, as one of the most countries in West Africa, has a weak economic foundation and a very low electrification access ratio. According to World Bank statistics Report in 2020, only 19.3% of Niger’s population is electrified, and only 13.4% in rural villages. Therefore, the micro-grid with its fast system assembling by using renewable energy such as Solar, has become a popular power solution in these countries and areas.

This project is located in Dosso and Tahoua, the two main economic provinces of Niger, which are an important bridge connecting the development of the Eastern and Northern regions of Niger.
