Scatec Solar has signed agreement with CDIL, a Canadian renewable energy development company focused on Africa, and BPS, a Nigerian strategic consulting firm; to secure the 100 MW (DC) Nova Scotia Power plant located in Jigawa State, Nigeria. This agreement was announced in connection with Scatec Solar’s second quarter results.
The Nova Scotia project company signed a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trading Plc (NBET) last month.
A long-term player with an installation track-record of close to 600MW, Scatec Solar will develop, build, own and operate the solar power plant in Jigawa. The project is expected to be completed in 2017 and commercial operations begin 12 months after.
Currently, Scatec Solar produces electricity from 404MW of solar power plants worldwide and it is a leading independent solar power producer in Africa with nearly half of this capacity located in the region.
