The project aims at supporting the public Guinean utility, Electricité De Guinée (EDG), in the development of its priority electrical investments, as planned in the Power Sector Recovery Plan. In order to reduce technical and commercial losses, increase the quality of service to customers and extend electrification to new connections in Conakry’s area, EDG requested support from AFD in three main sectors :
The IG from the AITF will finance works, supply, engineering, supervision, communication and EU visibility plan as well as financial audits in the context of the improvement and extension of Conakry’s distribution grid, i.e. reinforcement of MV/LV grid (MV and LV distribution lines, MV/LV stations, LV meters including prepayment meters) within Kagbelen and Ansoumaniah’s zones.
Studies are being executed to actualize 2015's INTEC studies and to prepare the procurement and construction tender for the 2 zones.
