February 6 (Renewables Now) - UAE-based AMEA Power has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government of Chad for the development of a solar photovoltaic (PV) project in the African country.

The pact was signed last Friday by AMEA’s chairman Hussain Nowais and Chad’s minister of petroleum and energy Mahamat Hamid Koua, the developer said in a Twitter post without giving particular details about the project and a schedule of its implementation. According to local media sources, the scheme will have a capacity of 120 MW.

To be located near N'Djamena, Chad’s capital, the PV park will be installed in two phases and will provide electricity to state-owned utility Societe Nationale d'Électricite (SNE).

Last summer, InfraCo Africa, a company that mobilises private sector participation and investment, entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with SNE for the output of a 60-MWp solar power plant.
