In Togo, the Société aéroportuaire de Lomé-Tokoin (SALT) is launching the pre-qualification phase for the construction and operation of a solar photovoltaic power plant at Lomé International Airport.

News on the project to build a solar photovoltaic power plant at the Gnassingbé Eyadéma International Airport (AIGE). Its manager, the Société aéroportuaire de Lomé-Tokoin (SALT) announces the pre-qualifications for the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the solar power plant that will have a capacity of 1.8 MWp.

The plant will be built on a 5-hectare site in an area granted to Salt. According to the company, the area reserved for the plant is deliberately oversized, as the final design should require less space. The area should allow for a possible future expansion of the solar photovoltaic plant.

Solar power solution providers interested in the Salt project have until June 6, 2022 to apply. “The provider will have to commit to the acceptance of the conditions of validation of the trial period of the solar photovoltaic power plant of three months renewable once during which the plant will have to generate a minimum saving on electricity bills of 25%,” says the manager of the airport of Lomé.

In addition to reducing the airport’s electricity bills, the project also aims to reduce the environmental footprint of the facility. Moreover, Salt is aligning its project with Togo’s renewable energy ambitions. Clean energy is an important part of Togo’s National Development Plan. Lomé wants to produce 50% of the electricity consumed in the country from renewable sources by 2030.
