3 November 2009
The Government of Togo is pressing ahead with its investments in energy infrastructures by investing 14.1 million Dollars in upgrading and extending its electricity network.
The financing was remitted this week to the Togo Electrical Energy Company (CEET), according to the Xinhua Chinese news agency.
This will allow CEET to construct more than 250 km of medium-voltage network and 150 km of low-voltage network, as well as a hundred transformer stations in rural areas.
A power station with a capacity of 100 MW is also under construction in Togo.
Six turbines of 295 tonnes each and six transformers of 60 tonnes arrived in the port of Lomé at the beginning of the week. According to the daily République Togolaise, the power plant will be capable of running equally well on natural gas as well as heavy fuel oil or Diesel.<br/>
