> The Nigerian government will be partnering with Singapore-based renewable energy firm, B&S Power and Sunnyfred Global, to design and construct a 200 MW Solar photovoltaic system to combat the country’s age-long electricity problems. Arrangements and agreement have progressed past the preliminary stages and the FG have also secured collaboration with other stakeholders and technical partners to begin construction developments on The Ashama 200MW/HR Solar PV Farm which is the largest Solar Photovoltaic Farm in West Africa, according to PRNewswire. The farm sits on about 304 hectares of land in Ashama Village, Aniocha South LGA of Delta State. A joint-statement from GREENPLINTH AFRICA, consultants & strategic partners to the project promoters revealed that a Media Chat & Project Roadmap Presentation will take place on February 25, 2021 by 11:00 (WAT) at the executive Sheraton Hotel in Lagos. The presentation will be chaired by Prof . Abubakar Sani Sambo, Vice Chancellor , Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto; Chairman , Ministerial Policy and Technical Advisory Committee on Environment in Nigeria and Former Director-General, Energy Commission of Nigeria, under the theme: “Sustainable and Affordable Energy Access for Communities in Nigeria” with the aim of enlightening the public on the importance and significance of this mammoth project not just to the locals in Delta and Nigeria but also towards Africa at large. This commendably follows in the footsteps of Togo who are currently constructing the largest Solar Photovoltaic project in West Africa, which is expected to increase their rural electrification rate to 50% by 2022, and 100% by 2030.
