High population growth rates and a persistent migration from rural areas to major cities in Guinea have led to an escalating demand for electricity to levels that far exceed supply.
In line with its commitment to supporting economic growth in developing countries, the UAE has offered this grant, managed by the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development, for a thermal power project in Guinea. This project is expected to mainly serve the population in Conakry and stimulate economic growth in the rest of the country.
The project consists of building three thermal power generation plants with a total capacity of 100MW, to be set up in three different locations in Conakry. The project also includes electromechanical works, civil works and technical services necessary for the establishment and efficient operation of the stations.
