Globeleq and Azito sponsor Regional Energy Conference

Globeleq and Azito co-sponsored the Regional Energy Co-operation Summit held in Abidjan on 26-27 January. Alex Douglas, Head of Business Development for the West Africa region presented the Azito power plant as a case study, highlighting the success of the public/private partnership in Cote d’Ivoire and the need for further expansion. A discussion followed where both Alex and Luc Aye, Azito Energie’s Managing Director, were panel members.

On the second day of the conference, the Azito team hosted a tour at the power plant for some of the conference attendees. The 430 MW Azito power plant generates more than one-quarter of the country’s electricity to the national grid and has plans for additional expansion of its Abidjan facility.
